Have you ever heard of Cimrman? If you lived in Czech republic for at least a year, you had to. But understand him? That is a different matter. He is a fictional character who supposedly lived in the late 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th and he was one of the greatest Czech playwrights, poets, composers, teachers, travellers, philosophers, inventors, detectives, mathematicians and sportsmen and because we want to find out even more about him, we speak to director Ben Bradshaw, who is in charge of the English adaptation of the Cimrman play called Stand-In (Záskok).
