Antiwords, based on Audience originally produced by the Czech Spitfire Company and Unveiling are two radically new stagings of Václav Havel’s works that bring out both the laughter and the alienation of Havel’s original voice.
The central character of Ferdinand Vaněk in both plays, who represents the dramatic alter ego of the playwright himself, observes society around him, enduring painfully funny angst of alienation. The plays also explore issues of integrity, morality and responsibility.
