COMEDY ABOUT THE BIRTH OF THE BABY JESUS OF VIZOVICE (Wallachian dialect)

COMEDY ABOUT THE BIRTH OF THE BABY JESUS OF VIZOVICE (Wallachian dialect)

5 men, 3 women and the organist (may employ even more actors)

This is a rewriting of Peška´s Christmas play „The Husovice Nativity“ in Wallachian dialect, commissioned by the City Theater of Zlín. All the enticements of a Christmas play, including not just acting but also song and caroling, are stuffed into this version as into the proverbial yuletide stocking. The holiday bonus comes in the form of the charming Wallachian dialect.

It’s a given that for such a play involving the birth of Jesus, all the familiar characters are present, for the story simply wouldn’t be the same without them. Thus the shepherds, angel, Herod, the three kings, a devil, a Hebrew and a cop.
