BBC Radio 3 drama directed by Jessica Dromgoole


As part of BBC Radio 3's special focus on Georg Buchner, Simon Scardfield adapts Buchner's radical retelling of the fallout of the French Revolution. It's 1794, and a new France is being born from the reign of terror that characterised the worst of the Revolution. Charismatic hedonist Danton, still tormented by his role in the killing of 1,400 aristocrats in a single night, is losing his grip on power. His political rival, the sober and focused Robespierre, is in the ascendant, and – with his efficient sidekick St Just – has power over Danton's fate. But can Danton care enough to fight the terror that he himself set in motion?
