There is both relevance and humor in Larry Shue’s WENCESLAS SQUARE. A minimalist cautionary tale based on the political suppression of late 1960's Czech theatre artists previously involved in "theatre as revolution," this
semi-autobiographical "memory" play is relevant, haunting and very funny: "A good-natured man of the theatre taking us into his world abstractly through time and geography." The telling finds an American professor and his drama
student confronting oppression and ruthlessness. The play parallels the Ukraine political unrest that has given way to Russian invasion.
