Don Juan Comes Back From the War (1936) by ?d?n Von Horváth translated by Christopher Hampton

A startling tale of dislocation in the aftermath of the first war. The old lothario is back and he has some catching up to do. But this is now the modern world and everything is changed…even the women. By turns grotesque and magisterial, the play is “a requiem for man’s better nature.” The Daily Telegraph
