Arnošt Goldflam (*1946)
One of the director, playwright and actor´s best plays is a brilliant study of human powerlessness and anger. Two women are being questioned - apparently by the police of a totalitarian state. The first is a high-class prostitute for foreigners and people in high places, and a witness and informer on the second, which is being made to pay for having tried to help unhappy people around her, offering sympathy as well as practical help. With time, though, their gratittude has descended into uncritical worship and treating the woman like god on earth. Thus she bas become a victim of her own kindness, and now has no option but to protect herself from the vicious circle by escaping.
