Come and see the show that conquered America and has been thrilling audiences in both CZ and U.S.A since it opened.
The show, THE STAND-IN (Záskok), performed by professional, native English-speaking actors, is produced by the same company that produces the iconic Czech versions and has the blessing of Zdeněk Svěrák himself!

Event by Cimrman English Theatre

we purchase our tickets separately and can meet after the event if anyone wishes

THE STAND-IN is not only a great translation of the original, but it is also played in the original theatre (Žižkovské Divadlo Jary Cimrmana), using the original sets, props and costume design. The experience of being in the theatre as close to the original production as possible ... without needing to speak Czech! This distinctly Czech humor has been out of reach for all but the most fluent of foreigners. Until now!
Cimrman, a fictional character created by Zdeněk Svěrák and Ladislav Smoljak, was voted the most important Czech in history in a poll by Czech TV in Protected content . His work defines the Czech character and humor. He is a cultural touchstone much in the same way as Monty Python is for English speakers. And it's just as funny!
