Peška´s treatment of the near-notorious subject of the Maidens´War offers theatergoers of all age categories intriguing, surprising, humorous and sometimes even chilling moments that reflect on various aspects of the „Czech character“. This comedy was primarily inspired by Alois Jirásek´s Old Bohemian Legends. The main focus of the play is naturally the episode with Ctirad and Šárka. We might further reveal that war breaks out when the gallant Vlasta can’t endure the insults of certain vulgar men, roundly kicking one of them. Music plays an indispensable role in the production, which after all is customary for Peška´s plays.
