Undiscovered Country

Undiscovered Country

"Undiscovered Country" is a 1979 Tom Stoppard play first produced at the Olivier Theatre in London. The play is an adaptation of "Das Weite Land" by the Austrian playwright Arthur Schnitzler, which focuses on 1890s Viennese society, demonstrating the effects of upper class codes of behavior on human relationships [ Stoppard plays at http://www.doollee.com/PlaywrightsS/stoppard-tom.html#33484 ] . The main character is a self-made businessman named Friedrich Hofreiter who manages to be both charming and chauvinistic. Stoppard's alterations to the play consist of adding humor while lessening the melodrama.
