Play in English at Stoka

ALTERNATIVE Bratislava theatre ensemble Stoka (Sewer) will premiere their English-language play Commission on December 2 at 20:00.
"'Commission' in this case means something like an order or a system that exists separately from a person and to which a person must confess," says Blaho Uhlár, director of the play and head of the theatre.

ALTERNATIVE Bratislava theatre ensemble Stoka (Sewer) will premiere their English-language play Commission on December 2 at 20:00.

"'Commission' in this case means something like an order or a system that exists separately from a person and to which a person must confess," says Blaho Uhlár, director of the play and head of the theatre.

The 90-minute performance is a mosaic of everyday situations through which a married couple walks as they discuss such themes as obedience and rebellion.

Though the conversations are a bit unnerving, they also portray the humorous side of life.

Accompanied by live music performed by Peter Bálik on guitar, the Slovak-language staging of Commission saw its premiere last April. This production is a collaboration between a group of actors where some room is made for improvisation. The English version was created in partnership with the Bratislava English Language Theatre Society (BELTS).

The English-language production of Commission will premiere at the Stoka theatre at Pribinova 1, Bratislava. Tickets cost Sk100 and can be bought one hour before the performance starts at the door. Tel: 02/5292-4463.
