New Season! "Ship of Fools" by Tiit Ojasoo
"Ship of Fools", a play by the Estonian writer Juhan Smuul, is a witty, epic and archetypal story about people who always sail away from their home, always so as to arrive home. The dramaturgical suspense and the psychological framework of human relations is as tense as the thread of a nobleman's shirt, the jokes and the way the characters speak as juicy as a properly roasted fish. The ship that sails to the ocean is full of colourful characters, of exuberance and songs, of laughter and swing.
The first premiere of next season is directed by Tiit Ojasoo and will premiere on September 7th 2018.
