Private View

by Vaclav Havel
Directed by Melissa McShane
Produced by Chris Howell
With: Thorsten Hertog, Joel Hillman and Ella Parkes-Talbot.

As part of VERGE FESTIVAL 2014: DEVIATE

With a touch of comic absurdity, Vaclav Havel’s ‘Private View’ is a short, brutal, funny story about an artist’s dehumanisation.

Ferdinand is a mild-mannered writer who is invited by his friends, Michael and Vera, to admire their refurbished flat. And even though Michael and Vera are an affluent couple who brag of their imported lifestyle and their sex lives, Ferdinand still tries to remain enthused. They gradually begin a verbal attack on Ferdinand, but, when he turns to leave, they beg him to stay.
