Overview

The Pig, or Václav Havel's Hunt for a Pig was Havel's final theater piece, a shaggy-dog tale set at a pig roast and filled with music. Vladimír Morávek took an old dialogue of Havel's, combined it with Smetana's The Bartered Bride, and the resulting collage comments both on Communist Czechoslovakia and the post-Communist Czech era. Also included is Havel's first ever one-act: Ela, Hela, and the Hitch. These plays, translated by Edward Einhorn, have never before been published in English translation. Part of the Havel Collection, a series of new translations of the work of Václav Havel, from Theater 61 Press.
