The Fisherman and his wife

...They once lived in an old hut and couldn't get anywhere. Yes, where to? "Mine Fru, die Ilsebill will dat nicht so, als ick wohl will?" - Such a thing could not happen to us. This (age-old), cranky, crude fairy tale of greedy insatiability? It has nothing to do with us. But then why do we feel so touched? How would it be if it were possible after all: Always further, always higher, always bigger! And yet more and more dissatisfied. When is it time to stop dreaming, when suddenly every dream is within reach? The "Once upon a time..." becomes now and here.  Aren't we all a little Ilsebill?


Oh how good that no one knows.... What the title of this fairy tale is. For who, pray tell, is this completely over-the-top creature who suddenly appears here, completely unasked, in the miller's daughter's dark chamber? Who, for heaven's sake, transforms this dungeon within seconds into a show stage of international format? Man, it's on the tip of your tongue... But it's also like milking mice: just when one succeeds, "More!" is shouted from all sides. And so the beautiful miller's daughter spins straw into gold and cries and spins and cries and spins. The king, this Grimm's Scrooge McDuck, actually demands more and more. So the miller's daughter, in her greatest need, promises her first-born to the little man who rushes to her rescue. It's just too bad that no one knows his name! Because without it, she will never see her child again.

Will she get the child back in the end? Well, that depends on how carefully the audience has studied the play...

Admission from 4 years.
