Sorry, not naval wargaming but this is still probably the best place to ask…

Some 20-odd years ago at Uni I was studying Drama and I remember picking up a collection of German Expressionist Plays written in the 1920s.

Expressionism: link

One of the plays was entirely set in the gun turret of the SMS Seydlitz at Jutland. I made a mental note to go back to it but never did and now I can't find it anywhere; I've gone through my extensive library of plays but it's just not there – whether I noticed this play in the library or in one of the second hand bookshops I used to enjoy browsing through I haven't the foggiest…

Anyone got any idea what this play might be??

Cheers,

Nick

It should be terrifying that this question was answered in less than two hours …

What's actually terrifying is that everyone expects that …

I find myself in full agreement with emckinney on this point. Bravo.

What an erudite bunch you are!

Many thanks NCC – much appreciated. Off to learn German now so I can read the online text!
