Don Juan Comes Back from the War
The Mainstage Series
World War I has just ended. Don Juan, shell-shocked and repentant, returns to Berlin, which is as damaged as he is. On a quest to find the love he left at the altar, he finds himself increasingly at odds with the man he used to be. After years of abstinence, can he resist the debauchery that once made his name? Odon Von Horvath’s startling tale of displacement and isolation in the aftermath of the Great War is presented in a bold new adaption by award-winning playwright Duncan MacMillan. Starring David Whalen in the title role.
U.S. Premiere | Directed by Andrew S. Paul
