The return of Václav Havel

LeavingIn The Times, Alan Franks talks to Václav Havel about his return to writing.
Playwrights take career breaks for all sorts of reasons, but none quite so strikingly as Václav Havel, the former President of the Czech Republic. This week his first play for nearly 20 years receives its British premiere, at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond. He was, of course, getting on with other things in the meantime, such as seeing the Soviets out of his country, dissolving the Warsaw Pact, reshaping Europe. It was hardly a retreat from drama.
Leaving, by Václav Havel, is at The Orange Tree in Richmond.
