The Stories of Brno

Theatre Reduta / Drama 24/09/2023 15:00 - 16:15

Humorous stories and legends about the city of Brno, presented by an impish storyteller. A play for schoolchildren and their parents, for everyone who enjoys strolling round and about the historic town and discovering its unknown places.

Did you know why our city is called Brno? Did you know that long ago a fearsome dragon used to terrify the inhabitants of Líšeň? And that a skilful joiner needed a single day to make a wheel and to transport it from the South-Moravian city of Lednice all the way to Brno? Can you imagine all that may happen when, on a rainy afternoon, three pilgrims meet at a local inn and begin to tell their incredible life stories? You can bet that there are some mischievous tales involved!

World premiere: at Reduta Theatre on June 14th, 2014

Performance length: 65 minutes without intermission

This play is suitable for children aged 6 and above.
