The play ,,Jacques and his master” by Milan Kundera is a tribute to Denis Diderot and his famous anti-novel ,,Jacques the fatalist and his master”. The play, the only one written by Kundera, retake some essential elements from the original story of the novel, renewing its form and the possibility to be staged. The beginning of the original play is the main idea of the variation offered by Kundera: ,,How did they met? Randomly, like everyone. What where their names? What does it matter? Where did they come from? From the closest place. Where do they go? Is it known where they are going? What did they say? Where we go?
