Product description: Königgratz, S. - I'm Still Alive with a Coaktrack, a cap, and a Signal Disc
In this play the author (whose real name is René Levínský) draws in a unique way on the best Czech tradition of tender and absurd humour, as exemplified in the prose of Bohumil Hrabal, the plays of Václav Havel, and the films of Miloš Forman. His focal interest is the staff of one remote train station in Eastern Bohemia. Innovatively playful and humorous, the play reflects on serious matters, is witty and entertaining, and has a strange bitter tone that derives from its perfect description of the banalities of ordinary life.
