PROGRAM NOTE

A story of a disparate bunch of Czech vacationers thrown together on a one-week package bus holiday to an Adriatic seaside resort. The strange ensemble of characters, led by a plain-faced, witty woman, consist of a minor pop star, a gay couple, a pair of teenage sexpots, a fetching tour guide and cupholder-obsessed two bus drivers. While this may seem like the perfect formula for a holiday in hell, slapstick humor and heartwarming moments abound in this classic Czech comedy.
