The Broken Jug: After Heinrich Von Kleist - Banville, John

This is novelist Banville's first venture for the stage, a free translation of a work by Heinrich von Kleist. The setting is changed from Germany to the famine-stricken Ballybog of 1846 western Ireland in this cleverly calculated comedy about a corrupt magistrate who is forced to preside over a trial for a crime he himself has committed.
