Austrian leftist playwright. Turrini has been writing since 1971, when his play Rozznjogd premiered at the Volkstheater, Vienna. A versatile author, he has written plays, screenplays, poems, and essays. Rather than presenting an authentic picture of reality, in Turrini's understanding it is the function of the theatre to exaggerate and, by doing so, to raise the consciousness of the public. He lives in Vienna and Retz, Lower Austria.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Lesebuch: Ein irrer Traum" by Peter Turrini (Luchterhand, 1967), p. 11: Ich wurde am 26.9.1944 im Krankenhaus Wolfsberg im kärntnerischen Lavanttal geboren. Meine Mutter sagte mir später, meine Geburt hätte im Morgengrauen dieses Tages stattgefunden, um sechs Uhr früh. Im Register des Krankenhauses ist meine Geburtszeit mit zehn Uhr vormittags angegeben.

Translation: I was born on 26/9/1944 in the Wolfsberg hospital in Carinthia. My mother told me later that my birth had taken place in the dawn of this day, at six o'clock. In the hospital register my birth time is given as ten o'clock in the morning.
