The Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival’s Spring Weekend is a showcase of emerging Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak playwrights whose work reflects on current social and political issues. The plays have been translated into English and feature local New York performers and directors who will have the opportunity to try out these works onstage as part of the European Month of Culture. The program also includes a full Romanian production. Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival, organized by VHLF and BBLA each fall in New York City, is an annual showcase of live performances, panel discussions, exhibitions and an award ceremony highlighting Vaclav Havel’s legacy as a playwright.
