This is a pseudoplay (the kind meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about the nature of Evil. The play begins with the real-live crucifixion of the main protagonist on Mount Zion in... More > present-day Jerusalem and continues with five flashbacks in five Acts, examining Evil by means of the thoughts, actions and personality clashes of the various characters. The plot intensifies throughout the Acts, first with a crescendo at the end of Act One, then with another at the end of Act Three, and then with a final crescendo at the end of Act Five. The climax leads directly to the crucifixion scene in the Prologue. Finally, a resolution of the main problem is provided in the Epilogue, and it is shown how Evil may be harnessed and made to serve Good. The play thus ends on a note of hope and cautious optimism but without underestimating the power of Evil. It was written in December 1986, completed in March, 1987, and published for the first time in August, 2007, for the second in January, 2018.< Less

"Liebeskunst"(German, lit. "Loveart") is a pseudoplay, meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen, about the incompatibility between genuinely altruistic love and superficial... More > soap-opera type love. Felix, a widower of European background represents the first kind, and his unconditional devotion and idealistic values for an American divorcée lead to his untimely death. Mitzi, the woman he loves, represents the second kind and her monetary infatuations as well as cynical values lead to such unresolvable crises that her life also ends in violent death alongside her lover. The play begins as an idyllic after-love morning scene but soon builds up such a furious tempest of character clashes that it all climaxes in absurd tragedy. Originally written in June-July, 1986, then completed in March 1987; and published for the first time in August 2007, second time in January, 2018.< Less

This is a one-act, two scenes pseudoplay (meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about a reluctant Antichrist who must die to save the world from thermonuclear annihilation. The act takes... More > place in the jury room of the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem. Nine senior judges constitute the jury. A death sentence is required to avoid World War III. However, no matter how much the defendant's life story is scrutinized, they cannot find him guilty, there is no proper evidence. Yet they must reach a unanimous verdict because of the unbearable international pressure especially from the superpowers. They manipulate the accused to make him plead guilty and they actually offer him permission to choose his mode of execution. He finally chooses public crucifixion. The sentence is carried out yet the play ends on a true note of hope. This is an original literary work written in 1985, first published in 2007, republished in 2018.< Less
EHRENWORT By Frank Luger

“Ehrenwort” (German for “word of honour”) is a pseudoplay (the kind meant to be read, not seen on stage or screen) about the fatal clash between two brothers near the end of... More > World War II. Franz, the older brother, is an angelically good doctor in the Wehrmacht, the German Regular Army; but his younger brother Rolf is a fanatically Nazi evil maniac, engineer, and Captain in the Waffen-SS. Caught in the middle is positive reality, represented by Maria, the wife of Franz; and two Russian officers, a senior Commander, and his junior adjutant. The characters and the plot are deliberately exaggerated and melodramatic in order to bring many historical, intellectual, and moral dilemmas into sharper focus; for example what genuine nobility is all about, why did Germany follow Hitler, how could the Holocaust take place, who was responsible for what, who was guilty of what, and so on. This is an original literary work written in 1984, published for the first time in 2007; revised in 2018.< Less
