Samuel French is happy to make available the first English translation of Dozens of Cousins – originally published in Czech in 2009, shortly after Havel’s presidency. This tensioned-filled one act is widely regarded as a contemporary sequel to Havel’s Vaněk series. It is in fact a post script to his one-act play Unveiling. The same characters meet many years later and play the same one-up-manship games in a new context. Communism has died with a whimper and the Free World becons with its exotic vacations, drugs and culinary extremes.

It would pair well with a number of Havel’s short plays, including Audience and Protest.
