Play Translations:


Note: I have not included excerpts here from every play I
have translated, and two out of the plays represented
have not yet been produced. The reason for this is that
I wanted to present the greatest possible variety of styles
I have worked with in translating from three quite
different languages: German, French, and Italian.
