About this show

In honor of his 70th birthday and upcoming two month residency at Columbia University, Untitled Theater Company #61 (Artistic Director Edward Einhorn) - the company that brought us the Ionesco Festival and recently the NEUROfest - presents all of the plays of Vaclav Havel in Havel Fest. Guardian Angel is translated by Paul Wilson, directed by Jeffrey A. Lewonczyk, and produced by Piper McKenzie Productions. Originally a radio drama, this play tells of a writer who receives a knock on the door from a mysterious but oddly sinister man who wants to show him a nuclear hair polishing kit. An Evening With the Family, an English language premiere, is translated by Carol Rocamora and Tomas Rychetsky, directed by Glory Sims Bowen, and produced by FHB Productions. Havel's first solo effort at playwriting, it demonstrates the banalities of life in a typical family, except for a grandmother who claims she is the only one who knows there is a dead body in the house.
