SVEJK  from the novels by Jaroslav Hasek  ( 1883 – 1923) is a theatrical Adaption by Mike Manicardi performed by our own company BadhuisInternational.

Set in 1915 in Czechoslowakie at the end of the Austro Hungarian Empire. Jaroslav Hasek was a satirical genius in the Cz language.

25 years ago ,(when Mike made his first version ) the War in Yugoslavia was ending. Ionescu and Burt Lancaster had just died. Europe was very different.
