Summary "German theater of the years between the two world wars, often considered part of the European "Expressionist" movement, was, in its most inventive aspects, a theater of opposition. It was a theater of protest against the values of the society that had prosecuted World War One, against bourgeois smugness, and then against the Germans' acceptance of the authoritatianism of National Socialism. The plays from which scenes are presented here are "Gas" by Georg Kaiser, "Hoopla! Such is Life!" by Ernst Toller, and "The Private Life of the Master Race" by Bertolt Brecht."--Original container
