Actor János Derzsi struck Új Színház chief director Zsolt Pozsgai yesterday, shortly after quitting the theatre.
Explaining his departure, Derzsi told website szinhaz.hu that he cannot work in the present atmosphere at the theatre.
Pozsgai said in his reply “we thank him for the substantive information which he outlined to us about the previous management in meticulous detail and made great use of it in the initial period.”
This sentence can presumably be taken to mean that Pozsgai was accusing Derzsi of acting as an informant, which prompted the actor to strike him, Népszava writes.
Pozsgai filed a report with police.
