DallianceNew acquisition, manuscript not available.
THE STORY: This version of Schnitzler’s “Lorelei” play that caused a scandal when first produced in Vienna in 1895, focuses on how the sexual mores of a society are indicative of the whole social fabric. Dalliance is a bitter sweet drama about a young working class girl who falls in love with a military officer. She alone has not learned that love is temporal and trivial, a mere series of dalliances.
