Summary In addition to his prodigious output as a playwright, poet and theatrical producer, Bertolt Brecht maintained no fewer than three mistresses at any one time throughtout his adult life. Takes place in a single day, toward the end of his life, in the late summer of 1956, as Brecht prepares to leave his lakeside home and return to Berlin for the fall theater season. Surrounded by the women who form his extended family, he is the center of a quiet storm.
