    The Broken Jug

    What distinguishes comedy is a clever twist according to which the village judge is to detect and condemn the person who committed the act, while the viewer from the very beginning understands that the perpetrator is the judge himself. And given that the character at stake is a »devil’s advocate«, it is the word play that helps judge Adam elude the truth, along with his relentless attempts to evade it despite the ruthless facts, that represents the main attraction of the play. 18, 19 April at 19.30 and 20 April at 18.00.

  • Dirac's Chord

    Namely, Dirac believed that the fundamental theories of physics possess a mathematical beauty, and if they are not beautiful, they must be definitely incorrect. This string of events was an inspiration for a theatre production called Dirac’s Chord, and serves as its material, as a palimpsest evoking – manifesting – a concrete historic fact – and at the same time immortalizing it, as in generalizing it to the level of the archetypal. 18 April at 18.00 and 19 April at 22.00.

    The Merry Day or Matiček’s Wedding

    The comedy managed to inaugurate Slovenian playwriting from its very start as an autonomous, linguistically sovereign, shrewdly clever and witty genre, characterized by, in addition to its literary merits, the qualities that are stage specific: compelling characters, energetic dialogue, dramatic plot and numerous situations involving the use of space. 23 April at 19.30 and 25 and 26 April at 18.00.

  • Don’t Forget the Flowers

    The life of a great actress is, seen from the outside at least, wonderful: stage lights, receptions, champagne; fans, letters of admiration and flowers that would occasionally fill up an entire florist shop. And then, one beautiful day, the actress is ambushed by a sheer horror, on the stairs or at the door of her dressing room: a dismissal. Just like that, unexpectedly. Where the hell did it come from, out of the blue? 23 April at 20.00.
