Postavy ve hře neustále utíkají do vyšších pater, utíkají pře hlukem, který symbolizuje...

----citace----
Zenóbie: Proč musíme vždycky utíkat, když slyšíme ten hluk? (Otec i matka stojí se sklopenýma očima) Co je to za hluk, maminko, řekni mi to!
Matka: Zenóbie, ty můj andílku, už jsme ti to stokrát říkali, aby ses na to neptala.
Otec: (Vyhýbavě) My sami nevíme, co to je. Kdybychom to věděli, tak ti to povíme.
Zenóbie: Ty přeci všecko víš, všemu rozumíš!
Otec: Téměř všemu! Jenže tohle je něco výjimečn

I'm starting to accept that it's more fun to read *about* Boris Vian than it is to read anything he wrote.

Faute de pouvoir donner cinq étrons, je lui donne une étoile.

Les batisseurs de l'empire fait partie du mouvement du theatre de l'absurde. La piece ressemble inévitablement à En attendant Godot. Chez Godot les protagnistes ne font rien en attendant un chef qui lui dirait quoi faire. Chez les batisseurs les protagonistes mettent tous leurs efforts a se cacher leurs tetes dans la sable plutot que d'avouer ils font face a un mal qui menace leur société et leurs propres personnes. Ce n'est pas mauv

Průměrná divadelní hra od viana. Chybí švihlost, ale bylo to tak krátký, že sem se ani nedokázal nasrat, že je to vlastně nuda. Alegorie na lidskou zapomětlivost, kdy se jedna rodina stěhuje furt vejš a vejš v baráku až se nastěhuje na půdu a zůstane na živu jen fotr. Ten bydlí v podkroví, který je tak malý, že se tam nevejde ani tank (spoiler)

Neni se čemu divit, v baráku neni výtah. Bohužel opět potvrzeni, že neni všechno co Vian napsal kvalitativně srovnatelný s Mravencema. Život stojí za hovn

This is a Marx Brothers type of action play by Boris Vian. Or is it more like Tom and Jerry. About a family that is under attack. Not exactly total family values type of work, but then again it's pretty funny as well. I actaully saw a production of "The Enpire Builders" a couple of years ago. Vian's theater works are a little bit different than his novels. You can tell it's the same author, but the pacing is slightly different.

Malheureusement ce livre est difficile à trouvé en librairie. Pourtant, c'est une excellente pièce de théâtre de Boris Vian. En fait une des rares qu'il est écrit. C'est dommage qu'elle semble tomber dans l'oubli.

It is hard to talk about Vian and his style. You have to figure it out by yourself. All I can say is shmurz is you, me and every single thing you can and cannot imagine.
