In 1998 he receives the Film Critics Best Actor Award and in 2009 the Jászai Mari Prize. He first put on stage Lutz Hübner's Black Out in 2009, and in 2011 he wins the main prize of the 6th Children and Youth Festival Hungary with the staging of The Coward.

The problems related to drugs make hell of the lives of more and more young people and their families. The performance attempts to talk about this openly from the point of view of those affected. The script was written based on personal documents of people confessing to their addiction to drugs, along with personal writings of the creators.

Why do we choose the „easier” road when we feel that we are at a dead end? Where do our intentions go off course?

"The Coward directed by Péter Scherer primarily thanks to Krisztián Kovács's great interpretation allows us to live through the experience of drug effects and gives us the opportunity to share and exchange thoughts about prevention and drug use.” ( István Nánay, Revizor)
