The Conspirators poster a lady's face in Andy Warhol pop art style

This hysterically funny play by one of Europe's most admired playwrights is receiving its Australian premiere at Holden Street Theatres.

In a fictional country, the dictator Olah has been overthrown to finally institute a democracy. However, the Prime Minister’s advisors have become concerned that the Prime Minister won’t be strong enough to resist if Olah returns. So they form a fake conspiracy to overthrow the government, hoping that a stronger military, more censorship, and the torture of a political prisoner will help preserve their democratic ideals.

Production history
This play was the first Havel wrote after the Czech government banned his work was, and it took him five years to complete. It was handed off in a bathroom and smuggled from the country, eventually to be performed at Theater der Stadt in Baden-Baden, Germany.

Laugh out loud comedy with an occasional whipping, no really...
