    THE LITTLE BEETLES, or FROM LIVES OF FIREFLIES

9 men, 5 women

A new dramatization of a book published more than eighty times, and often adapted for the theater, film and television. Its stories, depicting the life of a family of fireflies, provide portraits of harmonious and affectionate relationships in an idealized natural setting. Little Beetle´s encounter with Woodpecker evokes suspense and tension, while the playful Ladybugs provide excitement. As the seasons pass by, we follow Little Beetle and Ladybird’s adventures from childhood up until they are fully grown. Delightful lyrics by Jaroslav Wykrent add to the charms of this production by Peška.
