    November 7, 2019

    What cannot be formulated in sayable propositions can only be shown – that is how we may paraphrase one of the statements of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, which served as inspiration for Thomas Bernhard, one of the major Austrian authors, for writing his play Ritter, Dene, Voss, which we have adapted under the title Lunch with Wittgenstein.

    About

    Three siblings epitomise the essence of the entire world, bringing to light their minor private hells, past injustices, shadows of the dead ancestors. The compelling psychological drama for three superb actors, which Czech theatres have to date tended to shun, provides a great opportunity for us to win over the National Theatre audiences to contemporary global art.
