Friedrich von Schiller trans/adapt Laurence Senelick

The play deals with one of the most controversial issues of Schiller's day - class discrimination ...

Ferdinand von Walter is the son of President von Walter, the unscrupulous chief administrator of a duchy

Ferdinand loves Luise Miller, the daughter of a lowborn musician

To break up the affair, which he regards as a threat to his political ambitions, the president employs the services of a slick opportunist, Wurm

Together they launch a cabal to convince Ferdinand that Luise is promiscuous

Believing the lies, Ferdinand poisons Luise and himself, only to realize the truth just before he dies

"Schiller's talent was just made for the theatre" ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Nowadays, in a time of disoriented search for meaning and the canonization of the profane, Schiller's play is of astonishingly explosive force" ~ Thalia Theatre, Hamburg (2002)
