FSCJ’s DramaWorks to Present “American La Ronde” by Steven Dietz

WHAT:           Florida State College at Jacksonville’s (FSCJ) DramaWorks will present “American La Ronde” by Steven Dietz based on the landmark 19th century play “Reigen” by Arthur Schnitzler.

“American La Ronde” is based on the 19th century play “Reigen,” which is considered to be one of the most controversial plays of the late 1800’s. The play was later translated into French and retitled “La Ronde.” In Seattle playwright Steven Dietz’s re-imagining of the original German script, a simple silver bracelet travels through the lives of 10 bold and desperate lovers, giving us a glimpse of the intrigue and heartache left in its wake.
