The Brock University Department of Dramatic Arts presents- The Blue Room
(Freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde)
Directed by Virginia Reh; Scenography by David Vivian
The Blue Room is David Hare's 1998 adaptation of Schnitzler's Der Reigen (La Ronde), first produced in 1921. The plot is a "sexual daisychain": the Girl couples with the Cab Driver, then the Cab Driver with the Au Pair, etc. The play looks at casual sexual encounters as a (mostly) unsatisfactory substitute for human connection. This is a universal and timeless quest.
