This play is a deeply strange experience, with a cast of unusual characters, strange events and unpredictable outcomes. I am certain that much has been made in the analysis of the themes of the piece but it seemed very bohemian to the point of being unnecessarily strange and undecipherable. I don't think I would recommend it to anyone.

"the closest alternation between my sensuality and mental creativeness. So towards you, for example, I have only the choice of regarding you artistically or of loving you." Apparently the inspiration for Sternberg's Lola Lola, fits, Lulu is also exactly where she belongs.

It was an interesting play. I will give a more in depth review a little later. For now I'll suffice it to say that it was pretty good.

Benjamin Franklin Wedekind, usually known as Frank Wedekind, was a German playwright. His work, which often criticizes bourgeois attitudes (particularly towards sex), is considered to anticipate expressionism, and he was a major influence on the development of epic theatre.
