Fans of German theatre should know the Komedie: Pražské komorní divadlo (Prague Chamber Theatre), the resident company, specialises in contemporay German-language work, albeit in Czech translations. This is where Czechs come to see work by the likes of Thomas Bernhardt, Elfreide Jelinek and Peter Handke. The Komedie is also a theatre for directors. But unlike at Švandovo divadlo, they possess vision. Try and catch Jan Nebeský's production of Kabaret Ivan Blatný, a startling vaudeville on the Czech poet who died mad in an English asylum.
