Originally written in German as Nie Wieder Friede! while the author was exiled in England, this satirical anti-war play is set both on Mount Olympus, where Napoleon and St. Francis argue over whether mankind truly desires peace; and in the imaginary German state of Dunkelstein, whose inhabitants, even mid-peace pageant, are all too ready to be militarized. At the time of publication, No More Peace was in the early stages of production in a number of cities under the sponsorship of the W.P.A.'s Federal Theater Project, the first in Roslyn, Long Island, in June, 1937. BLOOMFIELD & MENDELSON B16.
