The performance lasts 180 min . My break.

passage of criticism :
"The Prime Minister is a lot of space ( not only) in the theater a few newspapers ; suffer mainly theater and less established outside of Prague . And unfortunately happens that almost no media attention and gets such productions , which would certainly deserve it . Mr. Pillow In fact, it seemed that the only reliable function key to a real revival of his artfully ironic dialogue and breakneck plot paradoxes is the exclusive property of Andrew Sokol and Drama Club . Buranteatr (a director Jiří Hájek) , however, managed to disrupt the alleged monopoly - and that means very simple , seemingly effortless . (...) Concision : Mr. Pillow is not only very well-done production , but may be proof that Buranteatr developed economical, unobtrusive , yet very effective style of staging .
