8. Die Physiker

Reasons to study this work

Definitely a play to stretch the more gifted, maybe for Oxbridge entrance and those with an interest in science and ethics.

The interest of the work

A nurse has been murdered in a mental asylum, the second one in a short time.  The inhabitants are three scientists each pretending to be another one and each with a different, enormous secret.    Mirroring the tensions of the cold war in the 50's the play is considered to be Dürrenmatt's best.
