Karl König's plays for the festivals of the year are arguably his most original creations. Written to be performed in Camphill communities, they show a deep understanding of the Christian festivals. With one exception, all fourteen plays were written during the early years of the Camphill movement, and it was Konig's hope that their performance would help bring communities together. Not only is their content entertaining and informative, but the act of performing also provides great benefits as social therapy.
Since they were written, these plays have been translated into many languages and performed in Camphill and other communities around the world. This is the first time that the original texts of all the plays have been published in a single volume. They are presented with an introduction and commentary by series editor Richard Steel, alongside fascinating performance photographs.
Karl König (1902-66) was well-known as a physician, author and lecturer. He began his work at the Institute of Embryology at the University of Vienna. In 1940 he founded the Camphill Movement in Scotland. Based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner, these special education schools for children, and villages for adults with special needs, are now established all over Britain and Europe, North America and Southern Africa.
