The play MAYBE WE'RE LEAVING is based on the short stories and the novel of the prematurely decesead Ostrava-born author Jan Balabán (1961 – 2010). This author's collection of short stories received the 2005 Magnesia Litera Award and the Book of the Decade Award in 2011 in memoriam.
Jan Balabán was a significant and exceptional persona of the past decades who contributed greatly to the Czech literature - his writing talks about losers, breakups, family breakdowns, alcoholism, relation to the father, forming relationships with one's children, feeling of existential burden juxtaposed with the finality of life.
