Mat Cat Theatre to Kick Off BANNED/NEW Play Series with AUDIENCE, 8/27

Mad Cat Theatre Company's BANNED/NEW will play at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables starting next month on Wednesday, August 27th at 8:00 pm.

Mad Cat, in collaboration with Books & Books, is pleased to announce the BANNED/NEW Reading Series featuring plays that have been formerly banned for their dissident, provocative content as well as new works that examine freedom of speech and expression.

First up: A staged reading of Havel's AUDIENCE.

Vaclav Havel, president, dissident, playwright, was thrown in prison several times for his political activism and writings. Audience is just one of his plays that was banned by Czechoslovakian authorities in the 1970s.

In AUDIENCE, in the aftermath of "Prague Spring", dissident writer Ferdinand Vanek is forbidden to publish and forced to work in a brewery. There, in a funny and moving conversation, he is made to examine several of his deeply held principles.

This reading is free to the public. Stay tuned for the information on the Wednesday, September 24th reading.
