How To Skin A Giraffe
The play ‘How to Skin a Giraffe’ is inspired by the play ‘Leonce and Lena’ by the iconic German Playwright, Goerg Buchner (1813 – 1837). It is considered one of the genuinely comic pieces in the German language and is Buchner’s only humorous work.
The other plays that Buchner wrote were Danton's Death and Woyzeck, his most famous play, before his untimely death in 1837 aged just 23. They pay tribute to the genius of Buchner in this, his 200 year.
In this play Buchner takes a gently ironical look at some of his favorite subjects: idleness and boredom, love, autocratic government and people as puppets among other things, treating all these in an absurd vein.
