Stranger Looking for a Flat

The story of mysterious Czech doctor, his suitcase and suspicious smile.

Production about things spoken and unspoken, obvious and surprising, time-barred and actual, noble and banal.

Promising doctor MUDr. Vaclav Marek (non-smoker without commitments and pets) is looking for a single room in New York. He prefers quiet and clean neighborhood. Price does not matter. Special requirements: Table. ASAP!

The performance is about the fate of a foreigner in a new environment, the misunderstanding and uprooting of those people who would like to belong somewhere but are not allowed to.

The play is based on the book by Egon Hostovsky – The Stranger is Looking for a Flat written in 1947. The book was written by Hostovsky in emigration in the United State, where he emigrated to in 1941. The book illustrates one of main topics of Hostovsky's work – the emigrant's feelings in new and strange environment. The production offers a parallel to current political situation in western world. As a main theme it watches the loneliness of a person who has something to offer, but is never heard. What it is that he is so "strange" and "foreign"? Is he doing something wrong?
