Friedrich Dürrenmatt

Die Physiker, 1961





The Physicists are one of the most known plays by Swiss playwright Friedrich Dürrenmatt. The play was written in 1961 and staged in 1962 – at the time when Cold War between East and West and the threat of the use of nuclear weapons were at their height. Rapid and unstoppable scientific and technological development triggers many questions even today the same way as the thinking about the possibility of abuse of new scientific discoveries for political purposes created a similar agitation at the time, when this play was conceived.
