Franklin Wedekind (Hannover July 24, 1864Munich March 9, 1918), was a German playwright. His work, which often criticizes bourgeois attitudes (particularly towards sex), is considered to anticipate expressionism, and he was a major influence on the development of epic theatre. He is best-known for writing the plays on which the film Pandora's Box is based.
