Prior to the beginning of the play, Joseph Schuster jumps to his death from the apartment window facing the Heldenplatz [Heroes Square].

12 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Schauspiel ist Schillers letztes vollendetes Werk für die Bühne. Vor dem historischen Hintergrund der Französischen Revolution und der Napoleonischen Kriege bezieht er Position in der Debatte um das Recht auf politischen Widerstand, um die Legitimation von Gewalt. Der Selbsthelfer Wilhelm Tell greift unter äußerster Bedrohung seines Lebens und des Lebens seiner Familie zur Waffe. Er tötet den Tyrannen und gibt damit das Zeichen zum Aufstand für die gesamte unterdrückte und drangsalierte Bevölkerung
Die Jagdgesellschaft by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )
12 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in a hunting lodge. "The owner of the estate is an ailing World War II general who lost an arm in the Battle of Stalingrad. His forests and hunting grounds are also dying, infested by bark beetles. Nearly blind from glaucoma, he can't see the devastation. The general is out hunting in the company of high-ranking ministers, a young prince employed as the gamekeeper, and his princess. The general's wife plays cards with a young writer. The writer agonizes about nature, human and otherwise." Gitta Honneger, p. 123
Der Theatermacher by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )
10 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A play about the performance of a play. The characters represent a small troup of actors--a family, as usual; and the setting is a provincial stage in Austria. ... The central figure is the 'nationally recognized actor' Bruscon ... now on tour of the provincial theaters with a play he himself has written." Jeanette R. Malkin, p. 188
Ritter, Dene, Voss by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )
6 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ritter, Dene, Voss involves the Worringer sisters--both Viennese actresses--preparing for their brother's return from the Steinhof mental institution in Vienna, where he has been a patient for some time. Dene is the driving force behind an attempt at reintegrating him into family life while Ritter remains skeptical. When Voss, a tormented genius (loosely based on last century's great, idiosyncratic philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein), finally appears, it becomes clear that he never planned to stay for good. The play takes place before, during, and after lunch, unfolding through caustic dialogue in this 'misanthropic comedy.'"

Vor dem Ruhestand eine Komödie von deutscher Seele = Avant la retraite : une comédie de l'âme allemande ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in German and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die zweite Thomas-Bernhard-Premiere ist Chefsache: Vor seinem Wechsel an das Berliner Ensemble inszeniert Claus Peymann in Wien noch einmal "Vor dem Ruhestand", Thomas Bernhards "Komödie von deutscher Seele " (1979), die er schon in Stuttgart auf die Bühne gebracht hatte. Die Premiere zur aktuellen Aufführung hat am 15. Januar stattgefunden. Traugott Buhre spielt ein weiteres Mal den Gerichtspräsidenten und früheren SS-Offizier, der seit dreißig Jahren Himmlers Geburtstag als "Rechenschaftstag" mit einem feierlichen Weihespiel begeht. Ihm zur Seite stehen seine Schwestern Clara und Vera, gespielt von Kirsten Dene und Eleonore Zetzsche. In Stuttgart hatte Peymann das Stück vor zwanzig Jahren entsprechend der Entstehungsgeschichte auf der Filbinger-Affäre bezogen. Ein Vorgang, bei dem sich der damalige Ministerpräsident von Baden-Württemberg aufgrund eines Todesurteils in seiner Zeit als Marinerichter während des Nazi-Regimes und mit de Bemerkung "was damals rechtens war, kann heute nicht Unrecht sein" ins Abseits manövrierte. Heute, im Zusammenhang mit der Walser-Bubis-Debatte betrachtet, stellen sich die brennenden Fragen erneut. So könnte das Hervorbrechen der eigentlichen Identität des Gerichtspräsidenten bedeutet, daß der Versuch, Normalität einzufordern, zum Scheitern verurteilt ist. Das Stück ist aufgrund seiner konkreten Bezugnahme auf historische Vorkommnisse für Bernhards Werk eher untypisch.
