For Václav Havel, despite its failings, history offers the record of “magnificent dreams, longings, and ideals.”

In this devised work, Barnard and Columbia students explore the political, philosophical, and artistic perspectives of the dissident writer who became president of Czechoslovakia, and then of the Czech Republic.
