The show is based on the film A Report on the Party and the Guests by Czech director Jan Němec from 1966.
In this surreal fable, a picnic is rudely transformed into a lesson in political hierarchy when a handful of mysterious authority figures show up. A Report on the Party and the Guests is an allegory about oppression and conformity, about the price man is willing to pay to adapt to social demands in order to be happy, and to forget about events he seemingly cannot influence in order to live and survive.
