Cat on the Rails
Kočka na kolejích (Cat on the Rails)
A play in three situations
4 men, 1 woman
A dialogue develops at night in a railway station between a young man and woman - two people who, as the cliché goes, can live neither together nor without each other. While waiting for the train which is to také them from another weekend together back to the city, their far from interesting jobs and their homes, they reveal a lot about their relationship, but also about themselves. Topol´s gift for combining realistic detail with sudden contacts with the existential dimension of life and death makes this play from the 1960s a timeless work.
