Written in 1978 by acclaimed human rights activist and first president of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Havel, Protest challenges us to question what we would do if forced to choose between survival and revolution. In this politically fueled play we meet a dissident returning home after imprisonment and a rebel campaigning in protest against a corrupt government. But this distinctive interpretation of the typically male-driven drama will also feature counterparts for the two leads -- two females meant to emphasize the universality of the characters. Protest, once banned from the stage but now revered, is a rallying cry to the responsibility of individuals to take action in the face of political corruption. Learn More

I had high hopes for this play, but was very disappointed. The production values were low and the lead actor wasn't up to the role. He overacted through most of the play, and for the last scene, spent so much time shouting (in a very small theater) that everyone in my group of four left with a headache. I am going to be very cautious about future productions I see from Ambassador Theater.
