In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of communism, the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents Playwrights Before the Fall: Eastern European Drama in Times of Revolution. Featured in the anthology is György Spiró's play Chicken Head (Csirkefej) translated by Eugene Brogyányi. The Threshold Theater Company will perform a scene from the play.
Several theater companies will perform brief scenes from plays by the other authors in the book -- Sławomir Mrożek, Karel Steigerwald, Matei Vişniec, and Dušan Jovanović.
A panel on the playwrights' role in the theatrical revolution of the 1980s will follow.
