Torrent description

Afternoon Play: Torch No. 1 15-01-2009

By David Pownall.

Monologue exploring the mind and motives of the young Czech student, Jan Palach, who set fire to himself in the centre of Prague 40 years ago.

Jan Palach ...... Karl Davies

Directed by Martin Jenkins.

From The Guardian

On 16 January 1969, a few months after the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia, a philosophy student named Jan Palach stood outside the National Museum in Prague, poured petrol over his head, and set himself on fire. It was, apparently, an attempt to revitalise his demoralised countrymen. Palach died three days later. Half a million Czechs turned out in the rain for the funeral procession, and the grave became a shrine for opponents of Soviet domination. A number of his compatriots swiftly followed his example.

What was going through the young man's mind as he set off for his date with destiny? Surely not just geopolitics? The uncle he had buried the day before? The father who had died when he was a teenager? Or his mother, who would have to carry on without him? The doctor who tended Palach in the burns centre described him as "an absolutely normal, rational, balanced young man ... who knew what he was doing and why he was doing it". Playwright David Pownall tries to put himself in Palach's shoes in Torch No 1. Karl Davies stars.
