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.[4] 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
