Protest/Rest

Václav Havel a Marek Hejduk
Švandovo Theatre Ensemble

33 years have passed between the two one-act plays, connected through the characters of Vaněk and Staněk and through absurd humour.

Show Length: 1 hr 40 min including intermission
Director: Daniel Hrbek
Cast: Robert Jašków, Tomáš Pavelka, Jacob Erftemeijer, Tomáš Kořének
Premiere Date: 25. 4. 2015

What happens when two writers meet - one who is not allowed to write and the other who writes whatever he wants? What if the first one has a surprising proposal for the second one? And what if the two of them meet years later when they can write freely but it is not working?

Brilliant Václav Havel´s dialogue is confronted with dramatic attempt of a debuting author. To sign or not to sign? To act or just to talk? Did the elites fail or did we? Protest? Rest!

Kindly note that actors smoke on stage during the show.
