The night before he leads his troops into battle, the Prince of Homburg strips off his uniform and goes sleepwalking

Moonstruck, his mind races with a young man's fantasies - love, ambition and victory

But when the morning comes, a single reckless act of disobediance sets in motion a chain of events that leads inexorable to the one thing he never dreamt would happen - his own death

Heinrich von Kleist is one of the most enigmatic figures in theatre history

Driven to suicide at the age of 34, he left behind him seven extraordinary plays

Unperformed during his own lifetime The Prince of Homburg is now regarded as von Kleist's masterpiece and is one of the most mysterious and beautiful plays of the nineteenth century
