Václav Havel, the late renowned playwright and former President of the Czech Republic, visited The Wilma Theater on May 26, 2010 to see the American premiere of his first play in 20 years, "Leaving," a wry political tragicomedy about a recently retired chancellor of an unnamed European country who struggles with questions of truth and power. The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage hosted President Havel at the Wilma for an interview conducted in front of an audience made up primarily of theater professionals.
