My family and I got so lucky today. We saw the play The Stand-In (Zaskok) in Baltimore on Cimrman English Theatre's American tour. It was just wonderful. What a talented ensemble this is! I grew up with the plays in Czech, but the English version...More

My friends and I enjoyed it immensely. We saw 'Zaskok' 'The Stand-in' a while back and also loved it, so we were expecting quite a bit here. It didn't disappoint. There was a lot of wit and humour; a bit less action that 'Stand-in' I...More

Foreigners should be aware of one thing. By seeing a show by Cimrman English Theatre they take the exam from being Czech, and by enjoying it they become Czech. Or, at least, as Czech as possible. Specific Cimrman humour is very simple, bitter-sweet, touching, childish...More

Thank you for your review, we hope to bring more Cimrman in English in the future!

Reviewed 12 December 2016

It's truly remarkable what these guys are doing. Cimrman is the quintessential Czech comedy, a really interesting phenomenon. And it has long been considered "untranslatable", due to how intrinsically Czech it is. "It would make no sense in English!", my Czech friends would say! "How...More

I am strongly recommending all the foriners who visit Prague to buy a ticket to this play! It is trully fantastic and entertaining. I am so happy that it made me possible to understand a fracture of czech culture!

I was really surprised, wonderful performance with charismatic actors. I am not so strong in english so e.g. part with Hamlet was hard nut for me, but even so I enjoyed it very much and I must recommend the play. Go for it !

If you don't know about Jara Cimrman then you don't know Czech culture. Since I know the Czech versions by heart I am always looking forward to hear how the English translation cope with certain jokes. Have to say I am crying as I did...More

Thanks! We hope you'll have an opportunity to our other play The Conquest of the North Pole!

One would think that translating typical Czech comedy into English would not work, as a lot of the jokes are quite contextual and based on Czech language, but it totally does work! Lot of fun and cool way to soak in a bit of Czech...More
