The Clever Lass

Božena Němcová

“Do not worry, father. I will surely guess right.”

The stories of Božena Němcová revolve around courageous and smart girls, who, against all odds and tricky obstacles, crack their life puzzles and eventually win good husbands. As the tale of the Clever Lass is full of humour as well as deep wisdom, we decided to stage the extraordinary story of a poor peasant girl who eventually becomes a respected and influential woman, which is less-known than the more popular versions that had been filmed. This clever lass manages to outwit even her loved one. How will he cope with that?

Our staging aims to celebrate the enduring legacy of the most famous Czech female author. And at the same time to commemorate two major anniversaries – the previous year marked 200 years from the birth of Božena Němcová and in the forthcoming season 2O21/22 we will remember 160 years from her passing.
