The dwarf stood on the table to look into her eyes. "Sleeps," he repeated. “Sometimes on the ground. Sometimes standing up. Sleeping in blacksmiths, with awl in hand, on milking chairs. Animals sleeping in the meadows. Even the birds slept. "

One of the sought-after and often processed works is undoubtedly the Sleeping Beauty: there are many versions of this fairy tale, various film productions, ballet… The Alfa Theater decided to go to a chronically known substance from a completely different side. He wants to address not only children from kindergarten and first grade, but also their parents. That is why she decided to make a theater adaptation of the literary model of the popular British author Neil Gaiman, "Sleeper and Spindle". The title somewhat refers to the Sleeping Beauty, but as Gaiman is, the story shifts and surprisingly points. In addition to Sleeping, there is one more princess in the story: she has an adventurous character and is accompanied by dwarves and we know her from a completely different fairy tale. And just before the wedding, this second princess has to decide and set out on a dangerous expedition to save her and the neighboring kingdom. There are rose hips, but sleeping sickness is spreading from the castle and threatens to cross the country's borders…

The title is planned by the all-talented director Tomsa Legierski, who has produced a successful production of "arma farm" at the Alfa Theater. But she has a lot of experience with the theater for children, and she performs a number of performances in the Prague studio DAMÚZA.
