Theatre: Protest/The Debt

September 22, 2018, 4:00 PM

Svanda Theatre will perform Protest/The Debt on September 21, 2018 at 8 pm, and September 22, 2018, at 4 pm, in the Devine Theatre at Georgetown University as part of the theatre series Four Plays from Prague. 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 the dramatic attempt of a debuting author.
