27/11/1901 Gerhart Hauptmann's "Der rote Hahn" premieres in Berlin

The Conflagration is a German play written by Gerhart Hauptmann. Like Henrik Ibsen, Hauptmann focuses attention on social issues. Unlike The Weavers and The Assumption of Hannele, it does not seem to have ever been performed on Broadway; however, it was adapted as a German film directed by John Olden.
