This play is an enduring statement about the experience of the Continent's shell-shocked soldiers after the Great War.
Don Juan, the notorious philanderer, is imagined as the last man standing - a survivor of the trenches now living in a world entirely composed of women. On his journey back to find his abandoned virtuous fiancee he contends with an army of embittered and predatory members of the opposite sex - newly empowered and scenting weakness.
Please note this show contains brief scenes of male nudity. Parental discretion is advised.
