Rostislav Novák Jr.

The rules of the black black woods:

From 6.30 to 9.00 pm, the audience is encouraged to take a break whenever needed, whether for refreshment or bathroom errands. The door to the theatre will be shut at 9.00 pm and no one will be allowed to enter the hall, because the performers need to focus. Thank you for respecting these rules and for your understanding.

Come and stop for a couple of hours and revel in the beauty of the black black woods with us.
