The Garden Party

The Garden Party

“Catch a rabbit and you’ll have it.”

This play, written in 1963 by the dissident playwright and president Václav Havel and translated by Vera Blackwell, is a tale of bureaucracy gone mad. The surreal satire combines colorful characters and increasingly improbable speeches in a rich comedy that could be about an oppressive government or any workplace where the less sense you make, the higher you rise through the ranks.

This amateur production of The Garden Party is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
