Gitta Honegger, professor in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre, played an integral role in the world premiere reading of the latest play by Nobel laureate Elfriede Jelinek.

Jelinek’s new work "On the Royal Road: The Burgher King" looks at the election of President Donald Trump. Honegger translated the play from German into English in time for a reading in New York at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center on March 27. Honegger is Jelinek’s authorized translator into English.
