About this show

Acclaimed philosopher Leopold Nettles wrote a book so explosive, everyone -- including the government -- took notice. Amid an endless parade of overbearing friends, lovers, and complete strangers, Leopold anxiously awaits the arrival of government agents who could appear at any moment... Or not at all. Czech playwright, political dissident, and later president Václav Havel wrote this semi-autobiographical play in 1984, within a year after his release from prison. At once ridiculously funny and deeply unnerving, the absurdity of Largo Desolato reveals the dilemma of a political dissident and his struggle with paranoia, paralysis, and responsibility.
