Honourable audience, Dames and fair maidens, Windblown vagabonds And coach driven lordships You are all invited to follow, With jaw-dropping excitement One hundred and one Fables of the master Heltai Gáspár!
Four members of Waiting Room Project theatre company planned to present a selection of fables from the afford mentioned one hundred and one fables in an object animated puppet show. The personified animals that exhibit certain features of the human nature will be presented with the help of puppets thus rendering a rather wide range of emotions linked to human fallibility: cruelty, vanity, demagoguery, envy, pride, revenge, gluttony, pretence. The presence of all these negative features will be skillfully balanced by a great deal of humour and other positive characteristics as innocence and helpfulness. The language of the show displays Heltai’s flavourful archaic use of language, but at the meantime it is understandable and enjoyable. The music plays a paramount role in the show. The puppet masters recommend it from children and adults alike.
