The Good and the True

A remarkable piece of theatre, The Good and the True weaves the true testimonies of two extraordinary people. Athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda spent their working lives building suspense, knocking crowds into submission and drawing gasps from onlookers. Both endured the impossible challenges of being born Jewish in 1920s Europe. True survivors in every sense of the word. Did they possess exceptional qualities, or was their survival just “good luck”?
