The fictional character Don Juan is notorious for his womanizing ways. In the play Don Juan Comes Back From the War, the infamous tomcat channels a weightier message, exploring the far-reaching effects of military conflict. Early-20th-century playwright Ödön von Horváth paints the lothario as a soldier who returns home after World War I to find that the lives of women he and his brothers-in-arms left behind have been irrevocably altered by the bloodshed. Nine student actors show their chops portraying 35 female characters in this Dartmouth College Department of Theater production, proving that even the most reckless romantic can by hardened by the horrors of war.

Price: $10-12.
