About this show

Sex can start a revolution, and couldn't our world use some serious shaking up? Arthur Schnitzler waited two decades to see his play produced because it was deemed too salacious for the stage. When it finally premiered — in Berlin, 1920 — audiences were incensed by its incisive, indelicate investigation of "polite" society's carnal underbelly. A pioneering play that rewrote dramatic form, La Ronde examines our shared hypocrisies, dismantling class as an arbitrary societal divider and sex as the ferocious equalizer that permeates everything.
