Student of the director Eimuntas Nekrošius directing course at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre Adomas Juška debuts with the play Švejk based on the novel by Jaroslaw Hašek. In his first work, the young director selects several situations created by the author of the cult novel and seeks to look at Švejk as a person whose smile was not a slight joke but a sharp opposition to government, war and the environment. The director attempts to reveal something real about the idiotic existence of Švejk and his surraunding.
