KATE KAPURALICA Duration: 80 minutes Marin Držić Theater, Dubrovnik Vlaho Stulli: Kate Kapuralica
Kate Kapuralica's comedy is a dramatic phenomenon of Croatian literary heritage written in 1800 at the time of the general disintegration of the social fabric of Dubrovnik by Vlaho Stulli, a citizen of Dubrovnik, a Francophile and a Jacobin, an official of the state medical service of the Republic. The text was rediscovered by Marko Fotez, who published it in Mogućnosti in 1964, and staged it in Split in 1966 under his own direction. The Dubrovnik audience has already seen Kata Kapuralica in the production of the Marin Držić City Theater, directed by Tomislav Radić, and later by Petar Veček. The choice of Ivica Kunčević for a new staging seems to be a logical choice in this anthological series.
The play by Kate Kapuralica is played on September 19, 2020. at 8 p.m. Buy a ticket HERE .
