About the plays:
Anyone who has always wanted to know what happens in a classic men’s sauna is recommended “Bohemian Paradise” by the Czech author Jaroslav Rudis. In one of the perhaps last bastions of the white, middle-European man is sweated, grumbled, argued and drunk until the banks are cracking.
Somewhat subtler, but no less radical, is the “Holy War” by Fabrizio Sinisi. The young Italian playwright tells of the reunion of a priest and a young woman. Having just returned home from Syria, Laura confronts her former teacher with her views on faith, love and religion and puts him to the test on the night before Easter.
