Clockwise from Top Left: "The Postman and the Actor," Anatol's Twitter Feed, "The Husband, The Young Wife and “The Young Gentleman," Gender Bending in Anatol's Hypnosis Scene and "The Student and the Professor."

For their Theater Project in German 351: Vienna 1900, students wrote and performed a 'lost scene' from  Schnitzler's Reigen, or presented a creative interpretation of Anatol.  Students were asked to draw on the themes and style of the plays and their knowledge of the social context of Vienna to demonstrate their insight into issues of sexuality and gender roles during this era.
