In 1998, his play Portugal premiered at Katona Jozsef Theatre in Budapest, where it played for a record 20 years, and became the theatre's most successful production ever. Two years after the premiere, a film version was also made, with the participation of most of the creators of the original show. The theatre production itself was also published on DVD in 2014.[3]

Several of his plays have been staged in England, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Chech Republic, Austria, Croatia, Romania. Portugal was staged at the National Theatre in London, with the title Dreaming Portugal. Another play, Sóska, sültkrumpli played at New End Theatre, also in London, as "Spinach'n Chips". The total number of his premieres to date, in and outside of Hungary, is over one hundred. According to the Hungarian Theatre Database his plays had seen 70 premieres in Hungary.[4]
