Once united as friends in the fight for their common ideals, their relationship is now steeped in suspicion and conflicting views: Robespierre wants to establish a democracy, whatever the cost, while Danton feels increasingly unsure whether mankind is capable of making the sacrifices needed for a revolution. Foreseeing failure, he retires to the company of friends and lovers for a waking night of intoxication and carnality, while Robespierre consolidates his power with each freshly hewn head.

Danton’s Death is a razorsharp analysis on political tactics and a study to the way politics and private lives intertwine.
