The Vaněk plays are a set of plays in which the character Ferdinand Vaněk is central. Vaněk first appeared in the play Audience by Václav Havel. He subsequently appeared in three other plays by Havel (Protest, Unveiling, and Dozens of Cousins), as well as plays by his friends and colleagues, including Pavel Landovský and Tom Stoppard. Today, the Vaněk plays are among Havel's best-known works.

Although exile-based author of picture books for children, Miroslav Šašek .
Although exile-based author of picture books for children, Miroslav Šašek (1916–1980), was a native of the city of Prague, he was not recognised in his homeland until the 21st century. In this prose the seasoned author delivers a surprising message and lets us wonder what genre for young readers he has created this time. The dystopian variation conjures up a world in which computer-game backdrops materialise into reality. Jana Vyskotová, Kultura21.
Eight powerful contemporary Czech plays along with four illuminating commentaries by their authors are presented in this volume. The plays are unusual in that all share the same protagonist, the "dissident" writer, Ferdinand Vanek.
In Czechoslovakia, these plays can only circulate in faded, dog-eared typescripts. These clandestine "unbooks" have become a vital force in currenc Czech literature. It is especially gratifying, therefore, to present the Vanek plays in a book which will endure.
When Vaclav Havel first invented his fictional playwright to entertain his friends in 1975, he had no idea that Vanek would be "taken over" by three of them--all real Czech writers. Between them, Havel, Pavel Kahout, Pavel Landovsky, and Jiri Dienstbier have made what Havel has called the "Vanek principle" into a public property. The plays explore the "realism of the strange," mixing fact and fiction, levity and seriousness. While Vanek says little in the plays, his silence is an eloquent retort to the falsehoods of bureaucratic language and jargon.
Vanek has greater freedom than his creators. Havel and Dienstbier continue to live in the Eastern Bloc, while Kohout and Landovsky, both now residents of Vienna, cannot return. Their corporate character, however, has managed to travel all over the world. The Vanek plays have been staged in many European countries as well as the United States.
With the exception of the three plays by Havel, these translations have been especially prepared for this volume. "The Vanek Plays" will be of interest to stduents of contemporary theatre, producers, directors, and anyone concerned with the deep divisions of our modern world and literature's response to it.
