Summer theatre after the children's book by Kirsten Boie
Adapted for the stage by Rainer Hertwig.
Knights, princesses, and castles – life in the Middle Ages can be so nice! Farmer boy Trenk and his family can only dream about such things. As bondslaves they toil all day and still can’t make ends meet.
Young Trenk thinks it’s unfair! Without further ado, he takes his piglet and heads for the city to find his luck. On his journey he meets jester Momme and Zink, the son of a knight, who, against his father’s ideas, would much rather be a squire. So, Trenk and Zink switch roles. Dressed up like a page he starts an apprenticeship with knights Hans von Hohenlob, where he meets Thekla, who would much rather fight than do embroidery. At a tournament, Trenk and his friends muster all their bravery and cunning to show what they are made of. And there is a dragon that terrorises the land.
Kirsten Boie’s story is one of friendship, big dreams, and the courage to stand up to set conventions, to take faith into your own hands.
