A theatrical séance inspired by the life and works of Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal, author of acclaimed novels I Served the King of England and Closely Watched Trains (the latter made into an Academy Award-winning film by Jiri Menzel in 1966). The performers make use of all the possible space in the theatre to introduce the audience to Hrabal’s magic world. On the stage you will see all the most important situations in a human life – birth, baptism, first communion, wedding, funeral, all of it depicted in a light, unpretentious and grotesque form.

This tale is delivered in a way typical of the KTO Theatre style: a performance without any words where the actors’ bodies, their movements and gestures and the music are the most important elements. This surreal and often-poignant journey through birth, first communion, marriage, and death relates to Hrabal more through its whimsical tone than any specific attempt at theatrical biography.
