Bob Barel is a sitcom actor loved by audiences and a theatre actor hated by critics. He is currently one step from receiving the Thalie Best Actor Award. There is only thing standing between him and the award - the vote from a dreaded critic, who in his free time organizes concerts in the flat theatre style of Vlasta Chramostová. Bob's loyal friend and agent Kamil is ready to help him win the vote and their methods of persuasion are quite lethal.
This comedy written for Švanda Theatre offers an uncompromising insight into the depths of theatre, where the longing for success often equals the struggle for survival. No one is spared - from the good-hearted porter, to the dramaturgist longing for love like from canonical titles, to the director who needs to lead with an iron fist a company where everyone wants to be friends.
Forget House of Cards - This is theatre!
