Petra Hůlová: Guardians of the Civic Good 2 – 26. 2. / 20:00 / Meetfactory

A peculiar family of five has been all ablaze with the presidential election, from this January to December 2018. The family conflict reveals diametrically opposing views of the last 30 years of Czech politics. What is the legacy of the “golden” 1990s? Why did the losing candidate, Jiří Drahoš, go quiet? Why does Marie want to divide queers into rich and poor? Does work take people’s money? What silenced voice does Michal want to support, and how will the situation with grandma pan out? Eight years after the publication of the eponymous novel to which this play by Petra Hůlová is an autonomous sequel, this dramatised description of Czech society “in the eyes of the defeated” gets a new and ruthless urgency.
