Tinch Minter and Elisabeth-Pable won a "Time Out" Award for their translations of the "Ingolstadt Plays" and directors Annie Castledine and Stephen Daldry won the Empty Space Award for their production in the same year. Three prose pieces by Fleisser are also included in this volume. Also included in this selection of plays is Sheila Yeger's dream play "Variations", where Louise's research into 19th-century composer and pianist Clara Schumann is played against the voices of other women, past and present, real and fantastical, counterpointing her search for her own identity.

'Extraordinary Bavarian dramatist Marieluise Fleisser's revelatory Ingolstadt plays prove the extent to which the contribution of women dramatists to world drama has been written out of the history books.' Michael Billington, Guardian 'Tokens of Affection is a classic piece of lapel-grabbing theatre by Maureen Lawrence... savagely entertaining.' Tim Brown, Guardian
