Description

Chicago Premiere.

In WWII occupied Czechoslovakia, Schweyk, a talkative dog-catcher, finds himself arrested, forced into the Nazi army, and wandering in the Russian tundra until he stumbles upon Hitler (whom Brecht has written as a vaudevillian puppet). Meanwhile in her Bohemian pub, a young widow waits with her country’s only remaining men: the misfits, idiots, and cowards incapable of war. Together, they sing of their struggles with love, violence, and the fear that they too will soon snap and start talking to the drunken Nazis who walk amongst them.
