Overview

The Cimrman Theater celebrates its 50th season in 2016. Now you have the unique opportunity to experience his work in English. Many Czechs consider his plays untranslatable but our productions prove all the nay sayers wrong. Despite the fact that Jára Cimrman is a fictitious character, in 2005 a majority of Czechs named him the Greatest Czech in a nation-wide poll. Our performances take place in the Cimrman Theater with the original set and costumes. The cast is composed exclusively of professional, native-English speaking actors. Like Monty Python is for English-speakers, any Czech can quote Jára Cirman, so learn some of his catch phrases too!

Good show, a nice way to spend the evening for an English speaker. I have very minimal Czech, so was some nice comic relief that I could fully comprehend in the center of Prague. Very funny, great actors.

Cimrman is one of the most important pieces of Czech comedy. I never thought it would be possible to translate the specific humor to English. But it works. The plays (I've now been there three times) are truly hilarious. Recommended!
