by Georg Buchner, in a new version by Howard Brenton Director Michael Grandage


Résumé: 1794: the French Revolution reaches its climax. After a series of bloody purges the life-loving, volatile Danton is tormented by his part in the killing. His political rival, the driven, ascetic Robespierre, decides Danton's fate. A titanic struggle begins. Once friends who wanted to change the world, now one stands for compromise, the other for ideological purity as the guillotine awaits.

Presse : "This version thins the dramatic texture and turns the play into a character study: one in which the sensual, death-haunted, strangely passive Danton confronts the repressed, life-fearing, remorselessly active Robespierre. That is a vital part of Büchner's play; but to focus so exclusively on that element is to miss the larger point that they are also history's puppets."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Certain plays are easier to admire than to love. Danton’s Death (1835), written by Georg Büchner in a fit of revolutionary zeal when he was just 21, indubitably falls into this category."
Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard

"Thrilling production...a truly gripping drama. "
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

"Visually arresting and viscerally involving production."
Mark Shenton for The Stage

"'Danton’s Death' is not uplifting or touching but it makes for an interesting, admirably serious evening."
Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail
