A "dramatic humoresque" – not exactly a truthful version of the clash of ideas of two major medieval Czech figures, John Huss and his philosophically more vigorous teacher Stanislav of Znoymo. In our version Huss invents the matches in order to set the world on fire and thus purify the church of evil – the audience and readers' task is to find all historical and factual inaccuracies deliberately incorporated into the play.
