Luise Miller

By Friedrich Schiller Adapted by Mike Poulton

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A masterpiece of power and politics that explores the battle between honour and corruption, between truth and betrayal.

Born into ancient nobility and son of the most powerful statesman in the land, Ferdinand is willing to forsake his fortune for the love of Luise, daughter of a humble musician. But in a world governed by deception and greed, where power is everything, their future happiness and liberty are beyond their control.

Adapted from Friedrich Schiller's 1784 play Kabale und Liebe, Mike Poulton's Luise Miller was first staged at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in 2011.

Press Quotes

'A love story laced with indignation... the language in Mike Poulton's fine version is alternately highflown and splendidly raunchy'

The Times

'Exquisite... Mike Poulton's electrifying new version'

Time Out

'Poulton's elegant script contains delicious cynicism about politics and some grand insults: "You civil-servile, rat-faced, write-scribbling pox-blister"'
