About Visit from An Unknown Woman

“There’s this monstrous idiot – this monstrous elected idiot – who keeps telling his fellow-idiots to throw my books on a bonfire and beat me up in the street…”

The play is set in Vienna in 1936 and follows the story of Stefan, one of the world’s most successful authors. He is widely read, universally admired, and translated into every language. Stefan lives the life of a wealthy playboy, with Vienna as his playground. He is used to only the finest things in life, from luxurious world travel to the company of his most dazzling contemporaries in Europe’s most fashionable restaurants. However, there are two things on the horizon that may dampen his prospects: the rise of the Nazi Party, and the sudden appearance of a woman who he clearly knows, but who he cannot, for the life of him, remember.
