Tickets are now available for the American premiere of The Good and the True. The Daniel Hrbek-helmed production will begin performances on July 24 at the DR2 Theatre. Opening night is set for August 3.
Written by Daniel Hrbek, Tomas Hrbek and Lucie Kolouchova, and adapted as an English language version by Brian Daniels, the play intertwines the true testimonies of two extraordinary people—Czech athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda. They both spent their working lives building suspense, knocking crowds into submission and drawing gasps and acclaim from spectators—but this pales in significance compared to their earlier lives enduring the indignities of incarceration and survival at the hands of occupied Czechoslovakia in the 1930s.
The Good and the True will star Isobel Pravda and Saul Reichlin.
