ExPats Theatre DC 🎭 opened the play Pankrác ’45 by Czech playwright Martina Kinská last evening at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Public Diplomacy Head Lukáš Přibyl gave remarks at a reception with the cast following the performance. The play, set in Prague 1945 just after the war, centers on five women sharing a cell in the Pankrác prison and accused of N**i collaboration. Each keeps a secret. Each knows the gallows await. 👏Bravo 👏 cast on a memorable night of theatre! If you have not seen the performance, be sure to check it out! ❤🤩🎭🥂🍾🇨🇿 #theatre #arts
