In addition to his function of a theatre director and film authorship of several plays, Patrik Hartl excels also in the field of Czech literature. His books are fast-paced, readable, funny and revitalising. His slumbering talent was apparent already from his first effort, Protozoan Shampoo Dot and Charles.


Show that you are “not a chicken”!

Protozoan, Shampoo, Dot and Charles are adult men between 30 and 40 years of age who know each other from school. It all starts at a class reunion. Do they really live the way they planned when they were 18? To prove that they still have balls they agree on performing some peculiar tasks: for example unexpectedly to shed clothes and record it on a mobile. Or all day to only speak the truth. It will affect the life of every single one, there are unexpected revelations and depressive moments. However the story finishes on a good note. At the conclusion everything is as it should be.

Patrik Hartl wanted to show that he personally still has courage, and at the time of publication of the book (2012) he started on his website event ´Don´t be a chicken´. He undressed run naked across the Old Town Square and called on others, to also "shed slow ageing”. The resulting luxurious videos of naked guys from different locations of the Czech Republic can be found on his website. For a long time now there haven´t been any additions; do you not wish to restart it?
