The Coral

Author(s): Georg Kaiser
Company: Collide Theatre in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre

An Expressionist play about infatuation with money and the obsessive need to gain more.

A millionaire is intent on acquiring as much wealth as possible in order to distance himself from his unhappy poverty-stricken childhood and ruthlessly exploits the poor in his efforts.

When his socialism-influenced children become conscious of his misdeeds, they reject him and his wealth. As a result, the millionaire desires a new identity and, with it, a new carefree past by exchanging his life for that of another man. A man whose one physical difference is a piece of coral on his suit.
