Peter Handke is known for his extremely critical (and perhaps even absurd) plays. Perhaps his best-known play is called Publikumsbeschimpfung (translates roughly as insulting /offending the audience). The play consists of actors insulting and offending the audience, and later congratulating them for the good performance. The play has been labelled as antitheater.
