and part of the 25th Made in Prague Festival
YOU IN MY HOUSE is an mobile-specific audio performance (in English or Czech) for two spectators and an apartment created by Jiří Austerlitz for the National Theatre Drama Prague. We invite the audience to visit their apartment anew, participate a little – simply join in a play of three actors.
By purchasing a ticket, you will get access to an audio track in English or Czech for your smartphone. Just two people in an apartment – and a Voice. Who is the visitor and who is the host? Do you really know the place you live in? Or do you rather come for a visit?
The two are together in one apartment, and a Voice is heard from a recording. Who is it? Can he understand the life that’s lived there? What is his fate? Are we able to really listen?
You can invite anyone to experience this piece with: your spouse, partner, parent, friend, child, whomever. You only need to be two in any apartment, have a charged smartphone and at least one hour of free time.

THE NATIONAL THEATRE DRAMA PRAGUE is the biggest company of its ilk in the Czech Republic. In the pre-covid times, our company gave seven to eight first nights a year, while also pursuing a host of accompanying activities and educational programmes . We also offer critical writing courses and playwriting classes. We aim to make the National Theatre an open and vigorous institution. While keeping in mind that contemporary theatre should preserve the cultural legacy of the Czech lands, at the same time, it must afford scope for vivid gatherings, and thus naturally respond to the current social issues.
