“I’m from an orphanage and I’m glad!” / Social drama. Docudrama.

Show4Business was created in collaboration with the Tripitaky civic association and the Centre for Experimental Theatre as part of the “First Success” project. The Czech Republic is home to roughly 140 children’s homes and 35 social welfare institutions for infants and toddlers. The play is based on work with Tripitaka’s clients – young people aged 16 to 26 who have grown up without their parents in SOS Children’s Villages, children’s homes, or halfway houses. An important element of the performance is the authentic non-actors’ expression of their professional dreams and plans. The aim of the First Success project is to help clients’ integration on the labour market, and the performance is directly related to his goal. Th e script was created as a collage consisting of various purely theatrical monologues by “great
poets” as well as the actors’ own testimony.
