Please note the show contains explicit language.


The play written by one of the most outstanding Czechoslovak underground personalities, Egon Bondy, is based on his personal experience from the environment of the secret services. The creators concentrate on suggestive acting bringing the audience into a physical contact with a harsh reality. They ask questions about the borderlines of human “normality”, about the desire to manipulate human freedom and about the limitations that we are willing to surpass for a certain price.
