Arthur Schnitzler - Daybreak

A performed novel

with Christian Dolezal
Director: Hermann Beil
Together with “Lieutenant Gustl” and “Miss Else’s Shame” this novel published in 1927 belongs to the great treasures of the writer’s oeuvre.
Arthur Schnitzler depicts with unerring precision how the power of money can destroy a person’s life.
Christian Dolezal narrates the story of young lieutenant Kasda, who gambles his last 100 gulden for a former comrade in a precarious financial situation.


Züricher Tagesanzeiger:

“…after 75 minutes of hanging on Dolezal’s lip the audience can only approve of the shouting appraisal at the end of the play.”
