GAME’S NOT OVER: The Arts and Theatre Institute’s first e-book

The Arts and Theatre Institute is currently publishing its very first e-book. The electronic book GAME’S NOT OVER – New Czech Plays (not only) for Your Tablet / E-Reader brings you recent plays by Czech authors. Though the publication includes a broad spectrum of playwrights – beginning with the youngest generation up to 35 years of age (Radmila Adamová, Magdaléna Frydrych Gregorová, Petr Kolečko, Kateřina Rudčenková), middle-aged authors (David Drábek, Roman Sikora, Petr Zelenka), and also mature doyens of the Czech cultural scene (Arnošt Goldflam, Václav Havel, Milan Uhde) – all authors included are currently active personalities who have participated in contemporary Czech theatre not just in the roles of playwrights and authors but also as literary managers, directors and / or artistic directors.

Two Slovak authors – Vladislava Fekete and Viliam Klimáček – are a special bonus included in the publication. Almost 20 years having passed since the division of Czechoslovakia, the understanding of Slovak theatre as a foreign element has still not entirely taken place, not merely because of the language similarity, but also because of the persistent interconnection of the Czech and Slovak theatre worlds. Proof of this can be found at the most prestigious dramatic competition in the field of contemporary drama in the Czech Republic, which is awarded by the Alfréd Radok Foundation – here, both Czech and Slovak authors can participate annually with new original plays.

The dates of creation of the individual titles in the e-book GAME’S NOT OVER – New Czech Plays (not only) for Your Tablet / E-Reader, begin with 2004, and end with brand new Czech and Slovak plays from 2010. Even so, all of these published plays have already found their way to Czech stages, and many of them have also found top places of the Alfréd Radok Awards. Their topics vary, reflecting the diversity of their authors, and offer a range from: explicitly political topics; the coexistence of generations; reflections on life in the world of modern technologies; to portrayals of picturesque details of Czech reality. Now you are welcome to make your own game with contemporary Czech (and Slovak) plays.

The e-book GAME´S NOT OVER - New Czech Plays (not only) for Your Tablet / E-Reader was published in cooperation with Aura-Pont and DILIA.

The e-book is available for downloading at no charge in three different formats (pdf, mobi, epub) from www.theatre.cz; the direct link is: http://www.theatre.cz/new-czech-plays.
