About The Good Soldier Svejk

The unfinished story of The Good Soldier Svejk was written by Jaroslav Hašek in 1921 and has proved to be the most often translated novel from Czech literature, having been translated into over 50 languages. It has cultural significance, regarded as the first-ever anti-war novel. 

The novel has been adapted for film, radio and TV. This stage adaptation of The Good Soldier Svejk is by Mike Manicardi, director of the Badhuis International Theatre Company.

The storyline

The Good Soldier Svejk is set during World War I in Austria-Hungary. The story begins in Prague, with the news of the assassination of Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo. The novel's hero is, of course, Svejk, who, before becoming a soldier, was a dealer of stolen dogs.

A simple-minded but resourceful character, the dark comedy features multiple anecdotes told by him, woven amongst the interplay with the other characters.
