A theatre in Brno is lobbying to have a street in the Czech Republic’s second city named after the late president and playwright Václav Havel. Members of Divadlo Husa na provázku have sent a proposal to that end to the Town Hall in Brno Central, the news site Novinky.cz reported. The local mayor said he was waiting to hear the opinions of local people on the idea of making a space leading to the theatre, which is currently without a name, Václav Havel St. Mr. Havel, who died in December 2011, had links to the theatre, which put on some of his plays prior to the fall of communism.
