The LAST Company will take a stab at the seldom-staged first play of Georg Buchner, Danton's Death, during this year's New York International Fringe Festival. The production will run Aug. 17-26 at the Context space on 28 Avenue A. Buchner (1813-1837) is best known, of course, for Woyzeck, a fragmentary drama about the mental disintegration of an oppressed soldier which is widely regarded as a precursor to modern drama. Danton's Death, written in 1835, is Buchner's nihilistic look at the French Revolution. This staging has a sold-out run in Los Angeles.

The Fringe Fest runs Aug. 16-27. Tickets are $12. For information on Cop-Out, call the Fringe, call (212) 420-8877, or consult the website at www.fringenyc.org.
