About Danton's Death

Director Johan Simons returns to take on this classic by German playwright Georg Büchner. 

Danton's Death highlights the showdown between the contrasting ideals of two thinkers behind the French Revolution, Georges Danton and Maximilien de Robespierre. 

Set in the period between the first and second terrors during the French Revolution, the story traces the process of how the former friends become divided as to how the revolution should proceed.

After Danton creates the Revolutionary Tribunal, an office used to condemn those in the opposition to death without trial or evidence, he realises the magnitude of his error.

When Danton tries to end the Revolutionary Tribunal, Robspierre instead co-opts the office.
