The hero of the first Czech absurdist drama, the eager, docile and malleable Hugo Pludek, a chess-loving member of the middle classes, soon grasps the mechanisms of career advancement; he becomes a master of empty phrases and dominates the world of initiators and liquidators.
Featuring: Martin Pešek, Zuzana Trojanová, Jana Durďáková, Jakub Feldstein, David Krůta, Anna Novotná, Petr Bilina, Filip Hodys, Radek Strnad, David Feldstein, Director: Jaroslava Trojanová.
