Excerpts from the 1964 off-Broadway production of Max Frisch's plays "Andorra" and "I'm Not Stiller", with an interview with the celebrated Swiss novelist and playwright.
His work has been described as "Kafkaesque", coming at the terror of alienation obliquely. "Spare us the necessity," says a jailer in one of the plays, "of condemning you to be yourself."
