World-acclaimed performance, Antiwords is inspired by the works of the former president of Czech Republic and playwright Václav Havel, especially his play Audience and its legendary film adaptation.
What happens when a brewer and a persecuted politician, alter ego of Havel himself, meet on stage? Two actresses, a crate of genuine Czech beer, huge original masks and absurd humour. After its premiere in September 2013, Antiwords became an international smash hit and is currently the most staged adaptation of Havel’s work in the world.
