The Merry Vineyard

A comedy by the German playwright Carl Zuckmayer (1896-1977), born in Nackenheim in Rheinhessen, which was a great success in 1926, the year of its premiere, but also caused a number of scandals. Among other things, the church was incensed by the "lewd permissiveness" and the German nationalist right-wing press by the hollow-headed portrayal of conservative types. The naturalistic, hearty and colourful work is set in the autumn of 1921 in a fictitious winegrowing village in Rhine Hesse with a view of the Rhine. The action begins in the late afternoon and ends in the early hours of the morning. The play is divided into three acts, which take place in the Gunderloch house, in the Landskrone inn of the innkeeper Eismayer and in the little garden of the Gunderloch vineyard. It describes Rhine-Hessian characters, idioms, folk songs and customs.
