Maryša

Alois a Vilém Mrštíkovi author

Lukáš Brutovský directed by

“From selfless stubborness to stubborn sacrifice.”

The production of the year 2014 in the opinion poll in Theatre Journal.

This is a classic work of Czech drama literature which needs a new interpretation in every period. It is a national play which has been interpreted many times. But where does the nation end and the play begin?

Maryša is a model of a village woman of the end of the 19th century and at the same time she is a general timeless principle of resistance. Nevertheless she moves the society which she lives in, and which she unwillingly co-creates. She becomes the sacrifice of stubbornness and she stubbornly insists on her sacrifice. She is a heroine against her will and murderess by God´s will. Is it obstinacy which controls Maryša image down the generations or is it the manifestation of a strong personality? And is the murder she will commit this morning a logical outcome of the circumstances or a moral appeal to future generations of specatators and performers? Is it black? Is it white?
