Ida the Hen and Pilat the Squirrel (5+)

«In a dark forest a hen, no longer capable of laying eggs, meets a squirrel who has a speech impediment. The two outsiders are happy to have each other, because there are three wolves in the forest.»

One day, Ida the hen leaves her pen. Ida can no longer lay eggs and feels useless. Soon she gets lost in the dark forest. She meets a squirrel named Pilat. Pilat cannot say the letter R correctly. A wonderful friendship develops between the odd couple: Ida, in her cackling and dancing way, dreams of being a famous actress. Pilat however is a real loudmouth, boasting about his courage in many reckless adventures. Ida is not so sure if she can believe everything he brags about. Is it important at all? There are three hungry wolves in the forest and being afraid of them makes them bond together. This is a story about the dreams of two outcasts, about being different and about social marginalization.

Ida the Hen and Pilat the Squirrel is Theater Bagat’s newest production. Bagat was founded by Roman Weishaupt and wants to cultivate theater for a young audience and families. Bagat encourages and engages theater people in the Rhaeto Romanic part of Switzerland to work and play in their mother tongue. Those productions are also translated into German.
