About this title

Synopsis:

Germany’s critically acclaimed Georg Buchner’s beloved play about love, humor, and humanity adapted by one of Switzerland’s most honored writers brings this tremendous piece of literature to young audiences as never before.   In a comedy of errors, two young people, Leonce of Popo and Princess Lena of Pipi, are destined to make their peace in an arranged marriage. Horrified at the thought of not knowing their betrothed, they flee, but upon a chance meeting they are love struck. Overwhelmed with emotion, Lena departs leaving Leonce distraught. But the King insists that a wedding take place—royals or no royals—for the people who have waited tirelessly to see a ceremony. Cloaked in masks two young people are brought to the altar—introduced as world famous robots—an effigy of a royal wedding. But when the masks are removed Leonce and Lena are euphoric to see each other’s identities. It’s a joyful affair and the King retires, passing the reigning power to Leonce. Leonce turns the kingdom into a theatre and bans all clocks and calendars. 

   
   

From the Author:

Karl Georg Büchner (1813 –1837) was a German dramatist and writer. Büchner's work is tremendously respected in Germany. His potential for greatness has been compared to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller.   Jürg Amann (1947-2013) is one of Switzerland’s most honored writers. He started his writing career with a study of Franz Kafka’s works, and has also worked as a journalist and a dramaturge at the main theater of Zürich.    Lisbeth Zwerger was born in Vienna, where she later studied at the Academy of Art. Internationally renowned as one of the finest contemporary illustrators of children's literature, Zwerger chose "The Gift of the Magi" as the first American story she illustrated.
