The Chattertooth Eleven

“Once upon a time there was a poor peasant named Chattertooth, and he had eleven sons. In his poverty he did not know what to do with them and so he had made them a football team.”

The 1922 humorous novel is widely known in the Czech environment. Its author, Czech writer and journalist, but also actor and singer Eduard Bass is a household name. Cirkus Humberto, his better-known work, has been filmed, and so was also the story of old father Chattertooth and his sons from the village of Dolní Bukvičky near Kouřim, who beat the major-league clubs Sparta, Slavia, and even FC Barcelona. With a great deal of humour, Bass ponders also ethics and professionalism in sport. The eleven brothers always stick together, never betray each other, and never fall for pride, even though they become famous all over the world.

The male part of our acting ensemble always looks forward to this playful and funny comedy, and we do believe that their enthusiasm as actors and football players will captivate all theatregoers big and small, young and old, from Pilsen and from afar.
