A reunion with his mother, brother, sister and her boyfriend will revive not only old memories but also conflicts that have been almost forgotten. A very interesting text in form and content was written by the author in 1990 during a scholarship in Berlin and it was staged for the first time in Lausanne in 1999. The JK Tyl Theatre will present its Czech premiere. In 2016, the play by Jean- Luc Lagarce was also a basis for a French-Canadian co-production film It's Only the End of the World directed by Xavier Dolan and also starring Marion Cotillard. The Czech production at the Black Box will be directed by a young talented student of The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Tomáš Loužný.

Premiere on 3 November 2018 at the DJKT’s Black Box
