Set in the 1970s, a dissident playwright named Vanek encounters friends, colleagues and an employer who offer to help re-acclimate him to society. In these three comically absurd plays, Vanek is a foil for the sophistry and duplicity of the people around him.
Vaclav Havel, a dissident playwright in the communist era, not unlike the Vanek character, went on to become the first president of the Czech Republic (1993–2003). He wrote more than 20 plays and numerous non-fiction works, translated internationally.
Production dates: October 12-14, 2012 (Fri.-Sun.)
