G.E. Lessing (1729-81) wrote three plays in addition to Nathan the Wise (1779): Miss Sara Sampson (1755), based on the novels of Samuel Richardson; Minna von Barnhelm (1767), the first true German comedy; and Emilia Galotti (1772), a middle-class tragedy. Edward Kemp is a freelance writer and director. Earlier work includes a two-part adaptation of The Mysteries for the RSC, published by Nick Hern Books and available from TCG.
