In answer to Question 2: The Fassbinder play is called "Der Mull, die Stadt und
der Tod" in German;  "Garbage, the City and Death" in English. The play was
written in 1975, and published by Suhrkamp in 1976. The play was made into a
film, directed by Daniel Schmid, under the title of "Schatten der Engel",
released in 1979. New German Critique has documented controversies around the
play.
