Poker Face at Voila European Theatre Festival

Dinner escalates to a game of money, power & sex. Prague, 2011. On the eve of president Havel’s funeral, a family dinner escalates into a game of money, power and sex where nothing is what it seems. A witty tragicomedy combining realism and physical theatre, live action and multi-media in a feast of theatricality praised by critics in the UK and abroad.

Written originally in Czech by Petr Kolečko and translated by Eva Dáničkova in collaboration with the cast, Poker Face is an irreverent, original play about generational conflict, the disintegration of political ideals, and heroes with feet of clay, It portrays a world in which the absurd is constantly lurking round the corner, everyone and everything can transform into something unexpected, and tragedy is always threatened by farce.
