"Frederick of Prussia/GeorgeW’s Dream of Sleep" by Charles A. Duncombe (based on the text Frederick of Prussia by Heiner Müller, as translated by Carl Weber)
This play about the dangers of the corporate state is more relevant than ever, as the COVID-19 pandemic heartbreakingly exposed the inability of a government that puts its faith in “the market” to address the needs of a nation in crisis.
“Adaptation” doesn’t quite describe what Duncombe has done here... he has gone far beyond adaptation, rewrite or even reworking of Müller’s skeletal script. The result is a lengthy, sometimes witty, often brilliant... American satire on the modern corporate state."
—New Times LA, Edmund Newton, 9/13/2001
"[David E.] Frank is remarkably energetic and holds it all together, always seeming on the edge of a breakdown... the rich verbiage of Duncombe... combines an impressive authority of poetry, political discourse, and outlandish stage frenzy."
—Backstage West, Brad Schreiber, 8/22/2001
