Show Description:

There is both relevance and humor in Larry Shue’s WENCESLAS SQUARE. A minimalist cautionary tale based on the political suppression of the late 1960s Czech theatre artists previously involved in “theatre as revolution,” this semi-autobiographical “memory” play is relevant, haunting, and very funny: “A good-natured man of the theatre taking us into his world abstractly through time and geography.” The telling finds an American professor and his drama student confronting oppression and ruthlessness. The play parallels Ukraine’s political unrest that has given way to Russian invasion.
