Death and the Devil
- By: Frank Wedekind, Samuel A. Eliot - translator, Denis Daly - translator
- Narrated by: John Burlinson, Amanda Friday, Mark Crowle-Groves, and others
- Length: 1 hr and 2 mins
This play forms part of a tetralogy which focuses on one of Wedekind's obsessive themes: the destructive interplay between primal sexual urges and social convention. Each play revolves around a powerful young female character, who has the power to control and captivate men, but who in turn is destroyed by the exercise of that power. In this play, the dominant female is Fräulein Elfriede von Malchus, an idealistic crusader who visits a brothel operated by the cynical impresario Casti-Piani in order to rescue a young woman who has fallen into his clutches.
