           Love actually stops in the Czech Republic. A story of three sisters who are trying to stand on their own two feet after their father has died at a driving course at the age of 60. The youngest one, Valerie, suffers from agoraphobia and has not been outside the flat since her father’s death, the oldest one, Roza, has eaten her way to the weight of 200kg and the middle one, Helena, is the only one who earns money and manages the household. According to their father’s last will, Valerie should inherit his pink superman costume which he used when anonymously saving people considered as losers. Is this costume now going to help his own children?

            When the life brings them three men; dogwalker Jan with a baseball cap on his head and addiction in his heart, self-sacrificing Ludvik with a smashed vegetable van and Samuel, an imitation of John Lennon with suicidal tendencies; a question appears: who is eventually going to wear the pink superman costume? And who is going to be saved by whom?

  The play is available also in English translation.
