The story of the stage version of the film Ucho, which was written by the author’s daughter Lenka Procházková, is based on the story of the film itself.
It takes place in the 1960s in the villa, when the regime confiscated the original owners to accommodate its cadre support to its luxury. After the presidential reception, where the unclear signs of the forthcoming power changes will be heard, the married couple of two ambitious parsons will be promoted to the elite of the state, making it the terrible night of truth. The more relative power, the more fear. The more the truth tries to hide from the ubiquitous eavesdropping “ear”, the more the truth comes out about the marital relationship and the characters of the Deputy Minister and his functionary mistresses and their human and professional competence, the legitimacy of their union, the legitimacy of their social status, and the legitimacy of the whole profitable mode.
