Judgment Day

Judgment Day $15.99

Christopher Shinn from Ödön von Horváth

Published by Methuen Drama

Large Mixed Cast

You lie there in the dark and the thoughts won't stop – you think of everything you could have done better…

A meticulous and respected stationmaster struggles to overcome his guilt when he finds himself suddenly culpable for a violent train crash that results in eighteen deaths

As the community come together to grieve, they succumb to a mob mentality that threatens to ostracize anyone who challenges the collective definition of morality and truth

An intriguing hybrid of theatrical genres, Ödön von Horváth's 1937 play is part moral fable, part socio-political commentary and part noir-ish thriller

Adapted by Obie Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize nominee Christopher Shinn, this thrilling new take on a classic play asks contemporary questions that resonate in our current political climate


A playwright who writes with unshowy depth and unforced menace on a challenging subject ~ New York Magazine

Mr Shinn sees and hears people as they are, and his greatest strength is his ability to reproduce onstage the clumsy poetry of natural human interaction. That skill is rarer than you might think ~ New York Times
