Vorstenschool ("school for kings") is a play in five acts by Multatuli (pseudonym of Eduard Douwes Dekker, 1820-1887)[1]

A play about the intrigues and power struggles in a royal court, the play was originally published as a text by G. L. Funke in 1872, but was rather controversial in its theme, so it took three years for a company to undertake a production. The play was ultimately first performed on 1 March, 1875 in Utrecht by the Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Schouwburg-Vereeniging. It became a great success, apparently performed regularly till well after the World War II, and is considered an icon of Dutch dramatic art.
