The Finborugh presents the world premiere of a brand new version of von Horváth’s Don Juan Comes Back From The War.

Don Juan’s back from the war and he’s got some catching up to do. Berlin may be crumbling, but after years of abstinence, the Don is ready for more of the debauchery that once made his name. Yet despite his best efforts, the years of excess are beginning to catch up with him. Amidst political upheaval and economic ruin, Don Juan finds himself increasingly at odds with the man he used to be. Is this notorious lothario finally about to experience a sudden change of heart?

Ödön von Horváth’s startling tale of displacement and isolation in the aftermath of the Great War is presented in a bold new adaptation by award-winning playwright Duncan Macmillan.

Don Juan Comes Back From The War is the third production at the Finborough Theatre as part of the Leverhulme Bursary for Emerging Theatre Directors, a partnership between the National Theatre Studio and the Finborough theatre, supporting a six-month attachment at the internationally acclaimed National Theatre Studio, and a six month attachment at the Finborough theatre, culminating in a production at the Finborough theatre.
