In the Jungle of Cities

by Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Gerhard Nellhaus


“You are about to witness an inexplicable wrestling match between two men and observe the downfall
of a family….Don’t worry your heads about the motives for the fight, concentrate on the stakes”

“This terrific and overdue revival of an exemplary ‘young man’s play’….could not be better timed”

Michael Coveney, ****

“It emerges, in this rare revival by SplitMoon, as the work of a hauntingly original imagination…
I felt I had encountered the work of a great theatrical poet.”

Michael Billington, The Guardian ***

“Here is an astounding company that delights in the play’s personality disorder on all fronts.
And it is such lewd, bonkers fun…. The cast is magical. Full of bravura, this is a wonder.”

Jonathan Watson, The Stage
