Translated by Michal Lázňovský
A famous theatre actor receives a summons to appear in court. He is about to go on trial for crimes that he commits in his dreams. The actor is rehearsing Hamlet and he is having dreams about murdering Polonius – which he also has to answer for before the court – and it looks like the judge is planning to monitor even his ‘on-stage’ crimes. This Kafkaesque grotesque with Shakespearean and Freudian motifs gradually and surprisingly turns into a parable of the consequences of violence and totalitarian power.
