The Story of the Bowl and the Spoon

About the Play

There are two christenings to be celebrated today: The one of princess Praline and the one of prince Saffian. All the guests are happy and content – with the exception of the evil fairy Irrwisch, because she has not been invited. She wants revenge and a few extraordinary christening gifts are supposed to be of help in this. Good, however, that not everything works out exactly as evil fairies plan it...
