The Good Soldier Schwejk - Preview Performance

The First preview of only seven live performances of The Good Soldier Schwejk. The new satirical comedy based on Jaroslav Hašek’s W.W.I novel, written and directed by Christine Edzard, will be performed at the theatre within Sands Films Studios. This unique live event is taking place within the film studio, because it’s also going to be filmed.

Schwejk is an energetic comedy about the absurdity of war. The enthusiastic young cast, led by newcomer Alfie Stewart (23) as the Good Soldier, will perform the play cabaret-style, from July 7th-17th, with one matinée on Saturday 15th July. The Good Soldier Schwejk was originally written by Jaroslav Hašek and published as a serialized novel nearly a hundred years ago in Prague. It became an instant success. Its author Jaroslav Hašek died in 1923 leaving the novel unfinished. By 1926 it was translated into German and had acquired cult status across Europe.
