Translation: Jana Novotná, Garamond, 2011
The newest novel from the Nobel Laureate encompasses in one package all of his favorite themes. The reader, along with the main protagonist, Roger Casement, a British diplomat of Irish descent, arrives first in the Congo during the time of rubber fever, then, in the very next moment, in the Amazon at the beginning of the century, and at the time of the First World War he observes the first attempts at winning Irish independence.
The Švandovo Theatre, as a modern European cultural center for the living arts, not only offers opportunities to enjoy the productions of its in-house dramatic company, but also provides spaces for alternative groups and the most diverse of projects. Thanks to its 130-year existence it holds the title of the third oldest theater building in Prague.
