Drums In The Night by Bertolt Brecht
Drums in the Night (Trommeln in der Nacht) is a play by the German playwright Bertolt Brecht. Brecht wrote it between 1919 and 1920. Drums in the Night is one of Brecht’s earliest plays, written before he became a Marxist, but already the importance of class struggle in Brecht’s thinking is apparent. According to Lion Feuchtwanger, the play was originally entitled Spartakus. Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg of the Spartacist League—who were instrumental in the ‘Spartacist uprising’ in Berlin in January 1919—had only recently been abducted, tortured and killed by Freikorps soldiers
