PLYŠ (Plush), a play by young Slovak writer Michal Hvorecký, premiered at the Schauspielhaus Theatre in Hannover on January 11 after a successful run at the Aréna Theatre in Bratislava. Hvorecký was in attendance at the opening of City, as the play is called in German.

In Bratislava, young Slovak director Marián Amsler directed the play, originally a book Hvorecký adapted for the stage. In Germany, it was directed by promising stage director André Rössler.

“The play is now part of the Hannover theatre’s repertoire,” Hvorecký told the SITA newswire. “For now, eight shows are planned.”

The Aréna Theatre website describes Ply#š as a play about soft things in a hard world. Its hero, Irvin Mirský, is an internet and pornography addict who longs for genuine love and success, but it is questionable whether he can overcome his past. After all, in the world where people call each other by trademarks and communicate only via technology, everything is for sale and some things can’t be found.
