Two female performers toy with gender and espionage from behind masks in a deeply satirical re-imagining of Vaclav Havel’s best known play, Audience. Spitfire’s unique style of theatre – an explosive mix of absurd humor, physical theatre and acting with masks – is the key to this unexpected interpretation of Audience.

The play takes place in a small Czech brewery in 1975, where Vanek, a struggling playwright censored by the Communist regime (a barely-veiled characterization of Vaclav Havel himself), must work to support himself. It becomes apparent that Vanek’s superior has been enlisted to spy on him, a situation which unravels into a comic entanglement of espionage and deceit, with many a beer consumed.
