The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz by Armin Wiebe
A comic ‘folk play’ with a classical music base, The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz follows a farm wife, a carpenter, a midwife, and a musician as they struggle to find fulfillment of their seemingly impossible wantings, drawing on the means at hand on a homestead removed from the stifling customs of the village.
Armin Wiebe does for Gutenthal…what Stephen Leacock did for Mariposa and its inhabitants. The results are similarly uproarious and touching, side-splittingly anarchic and wistful.” —CM Magazine
