Although they exceed others with their dignity, unimpeachable morality and diligence they are constantly subjected to humiliation, slander and intrigues. And it is mainly the hangman's wife, Rosina who thanks to her cleverness can deal with envy, stupidity and pettiness of 'respectable' burghers. This comedy by Karl R Krpata, for his popular dramatic situations, life-like characters and humour, enjoyed not only numerous theatrical productions but was also turned into a film (directed by Frič) with a stellar cast (Štěpničková, Smolík). In Pilsen, the comedy will be staged for the first time using local characteristics.
Premiere on 28 October 2017 at the New Theatre.
