A fairytale full of ridiculous twists, nonsense, and kindness reveals how it might end up if an aging wolf undertakes the task of upbringing a small rabbit. Puppet Theatre at the Crossroads was the very first one in Slovakia to introduce the play by the significant Polish author Marta Guśniowska who specialises in writing for children and whose pieces are played with great success in many distinguished theatres throughout Poland.
The Premium of the Slovak Literary Fund for the production of Bon appetit, wolf! was awarded to Marián Pecko for his work as a director and a translator, and to Mária Šamajová for her portrayal of Rabbit.
