About This Show

The Files was inspired by the theater’s discovery of a Secret Police report on one of their early plays. The author’s intellectually over- ambitious analysis of the play’s subversive tendencies was so grotesquely uncomprehending that it was hilarious. Using Secret Police reports kept on the theater’s members from the 1970s, as well as the company’s own personal letters from that period, and juxtaposted with portions of the performances to which the police reports refer, The Files draws back the Iron Curtain to give audiences to a striking look at living and working through an oppressive government regime. Performed in English.
