A play based on a classic Czech fairytale in which a little boy disobeys his grandparents’ instructions not to open the door to anyone while they are out. The creators of this studio production have respected the story while developing it in an original way by adding a number of innovative motifs. The theme of disobedience no longer applies merely to the disobedient Budulínek or the over-sensitive ears of the crafty fox who comes to his door, but also to Budulínek’s grandparents, whose hearing is terrible. Why this is so and how it all led to Budulínek’s adventure is revealed by this winning studio production, full of humour, live music and puppetry delights.
„The production (…) is appealingly modest, immediate (helped by the fact that it takes place not on a large stage but in a studio), fresh and has something to say. It seems almost a miracle that this Liberec theatre, despite severe budget constraints, has managed to maintain such a high standard of premieres this year, and that modest material conditions can give rise to such excellent theatre, rich in ideas.“
