As part of his practice as an artist and professor Christopher Williams’ art is founded in historical research, and the manifestations of realism in relationship to theatrical, cinematic, and photographic production from the late 60s and early 70s in Germany. Thus he inevitably came across the plays of legendary German author Franz Xaver Kroetz, this first English language translation of his play Inklusive (1971) is the product of his curiosity. Inklusive consists of seven scenes of tightly scripted dialogue of a West German couple on a prepaid all-inclusive vacation package in Italy. It is the 2nd part of a new series of books edited, designed and produced by Christopher Williams.
