Please note: There will also be a matinee performance at 3pm on Saturday 12 April.

Professor Leopold Nettles is awaiting a knock on the door. He fears he will be taken away and accused. He will be forced to make a stand. It is a confrontation that will define his life and work. Those around him support, caution and even ignore his growing tension.

This is a rare chance to see this fine play written by Havel shortly after his first-hand experience of imprisonment by Czechoslovakia's communist regime. It is translated by Tom Stoppard with empathy and zest.

On one level this political play is about fear created by the oppressive state. On another level, this is a universal story about our need for external validation and the fear of being found wanting.

It is human, edgy and even occasionally slapstick - as funny and dangerous as life.
