National Production 2016
Humans of Budějovice
The unique experiment to put the whole town on stage involved exactly 100 inhabitants of České Budějovice, each of them representing 1 % of the city population. The project was initiated by the students of the local Secondary Grammar School and is a co-production of the student festival “Budějovický Majáles” and the South Bohemian Theatre.
