About the Play

‘Garbage for Plums’ is a production with puppets for kids and adults. It is a full of humour show based on a traditional Bulgarian folklore fairytale about a man who wanted to find a good and caring wife for himself. He chose a rather strange but clever way to do it. He went with his donkey from village to village, and offered an exchange of nice fresh juicy plums for house garbage. Lots of women came with piles of dirt, thinking that the man is crazy. At the very end a modest and beautiful girl came without garbage because in her house she could not find any – her home was very clean. The man was so happy and chose her as his beloved bride.
