Adapted and Directed by John Poston
PSC Artistic Lab Series Event

World Premiere

Prague, 1936. A routine burglary investigation propels a humble police detective straight into the crosshairs of an international criminal conspiracy intent on plunging Czechoslovakia and the world into the next conflagration… A lively detective yarn, The Order of the Blue Chrysanthemum features quirky characters and noir settings from Karel Čapek’s beloved collection of short fiction, Pocket Tales. “The Poet,” “Vertigo,” “An Ordinary Murder,” “Footprints,” and more…Čapek’s vintage stories of unorthodox detectives, decadent aristocrats, and murdered movie stars are reimagined and woven together into one meta-mystery that is steeped in the humanistic philosophy of the First Republic’s greatest literary giant.

From the mansions to the dive-bars, pursued by murder, madness, and betrayal, on the run for his life and for the future of his young country, police detective Jan Mejzlík won’t relent until he has exposed all of the secrets of…The Order of the Blue Chrysanthemum.
