Gas (1918) written by Georg Kaiser and produced at the Goodman Theater, Chicago, around 1920

A scene from Gas (1918) written by the German playwright Georg Kaiser (1878 - 1945) and produced at the Goodman Theater, Chicago, around 1920



"For a few years, the two-fold mission of creating both a professional theater and school that Goodman had envisioned was a success. Student artists learned the techniques of stage performance and design, while a professional repertory company brought to the Goodman’s stage a heady mixture of classical drama, premieres of European experimental works (including Georg Kaiser’s expressionistic sensation Gas), new plays (most successfully Tour du Monde, adapted from Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days) and even a series of short operas."
