In the mid-1960s, 'The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Perfomed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Chernton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade' was made into a film by British director Peter Brook. The weaving of space, time, plot, real and imagined characters, sexual liberation, and surrealist imagery made 'Marat/Sade' a sensation. Little did audiences realize that this 'counterculture' play was actually written by a German Jew. The then practically unknown Peter Weiss (1916-82) was also at work on a play about Auschwitz - 'The Investigation' - which is one of the most significant literary treatments of the subject. Both plays, plus 'The Shadow of the Coachman's Body' are included in this volume.
