About this show

Václav Havel, renowned playwright and former President of the Czech Republic, crafts his first play in 20 years, and Wilma audiences will be the first to see it in the U.S. Leaving is an epic story of a recently retired Chancellor who struggles with his family and functionaries over questions of truth and power. Allusions from Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard and Shakespeare's King Lear invade the Chancellor's consciousness in this wry political tragicomedy that The Sunday Times (London) called "deeply serious and thrillingly funny."
