Slovak theatre for English tourists

THEATRE performances in English are common in many European cities and Bratislava is no exception. The Bridgin’ Drama theatre, established last year by local and foreign English language lectors, performs Tajovsky Ruulezz!, a witty and up-to-date adaptation of a Slovak classical comedy by Jozef Gregor Tajovský, in downtown Bratislava, the TASR newswire wrote.

The original Slovak name of the piece is Ženský zákon. The one-hour performance tells the story of Anička and Miško, who get engaged, but their families start fighting, just like in Romeo and Juliet, but with a happier ending.

The show takes place in the Zichy Palace on Fridays with the last performance planned for Tuesday, August 27.
