IJOB

Tereza Verecká

Cast: 3 men, 1 woman

On a stone field, there stands a house where Ata lives with his wife, son and an infirm father. Ata is fighting with his illness, whose symptoms are strange hallucination attacks, and reality, which is even more absurd than his hallucinations. The house is becoming overloaded by post – advertising leaflets, postal orders, bills. All the post is attacking Ata who cannot defend himself and his condition is getting worse. The family starts to notice that something is wrong. His son is leaving. The house is seized by the distrainors. But what can they take when there is nothing left? A play about relationships between fathers and sons and our own helplessness when banality grows into something grotesquely huge.

 

The play was awarded the third place at Evald Schorm Awards for 2011.

  The play is available in Czech original.
