About the performance
The play “A Kitten Named Woof” is based on a tale by Grigoriy Oster. This work, written more than 40 years ago, has been loved by many generations of readers. The main character of the tale is a little kitten with an unusual name, Woof, who gets acquainted with the world and sees it in an unusual way. The characters of the play are two children, a kitten and a puppy, and two adults, a dog and a cat. The adult dog and cat behave as they have for many years, always expecting troubles and betrayals, and strive to teach this experience to their little ones. But the children see the world differently and their actions are not as the adults in the yard were expecting – little ones want to play and make friends with each other.
The director of the play Māris Koristins says, “This play is about childhood, the sweetest time, when there is no negative experience, and the kittens do not yet know with whom they should or should not be friends. It is so nice to watch the compartment of animal babies in zoo, where a wide variety of animal babies play together. And what is also important – if the adult has done wrong to the youngest, he also has to apologize”.
