The correspondence of Voskovec and Werich is a strong testimony about the lives of two extraordinary people in difficult times.

The letters of the legendary founders of the Liberated Theatre, whose lives were separated after February 1948, are a fascinating testimony of their originality and artistic maturity. At the same time, these letters tell the life stories of these important personalities in a bipolar world full of iron curtains and cold wars. These letters are priceless evidence of the intellectual and spiritual world of V+W, as well as the top literary work in Jiří Voskovec’s postwar period.

“The form of abbreviation, short connections, theatrical allusions, plus the private codes and brilliant stylization, and unbelievable addressing and signing…” – these are the apt words that critics use to categorize and describe their correspondence.
