Babička červené Karkulky slaví narozeniny! | Little Red Riding Hood’s Grandma is Celebrating her Birthday Today

author: Vít Peřina
directed by Michaela Homolová

An unconventional adaptation of a traditional fairy tale

The wolves are returning to Bohemia and a young wolf boy has a big task ahead of him! A young hunter must pass an exam. And Little Red Riding Hood has to go to her grandmother again…The three initiatory journeys of the three different heroes intersect in a crazy finale in the middle of the forest – in a cottage where Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother is celebrating a significant anniversary.

It regularly travels to international festivals around the world (China, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, USA, Canada, etc.). Since 2003, Vít Peřina, perhaps the only author of theater texts for children and youth in the Czech Republic, has been working here as a dramaturge. Since 2021, the new director is Kateřina Pavlů and the artistic director is Michaela Homolová, an actress and director who has created several legendary productions here (The Lamb Who Fell from the Sky, ŠŠŠŠ. ŠŠŠŠ. HŮŮŮ. HAF! etc.) The Naive Theater Liberec annually prepares the festival Mateřinka, aimed at the audience of preschool age (this year was the 27th).
