Péter Esterházy wrote his drama Én vagyok a te [I am You] in response to an invitation from the National Theatre of Budapest. The play is a theatre “interpretation” of the first of the ten commandments. The drama will be presented as a reading performance, followed by a talk with the author about writing, theatre, home and history, with special attention to his newest novel, Egyszerű történet vessző száz oldal (a kardozós változat) [Simple Story Comma One Hundred Pages. The Sword-Brandishing Version], which was presented at the Budapest Book Festival this year.
The Péter Esterházy evening is supported by Szépírók Társasága.
The evening’s host is András Visky.
