This play is based on one of the most moving and saddest stories of Serbian Realism – The Kraut Girl by Laza Lazarević. This turn of the century story is about a young Serb studying away from home in a far richer, more learned world and how he managed to conquer shame and pride in order to be happy, about the feeling of duty to his family and his community for which he had to reject his own happiness and how patriarchal selfishness and patriotic narrow-mindedness can lead a man to lose his freedom, deny his love and betray himself.
The Kraut Girl was performed at Sterijino Pozorje theatre festival in Novi Sad, Joakimfest in Kragujevac, Theatre Marathon in Sombor, Bora’s Theatre Days festival in Vranje and at Vršac Theatre Autumn festival with guest performances at Pančevo, Valjevo and Čačak.
The production won Sterijino Pozorje award for costume design (Lana Cvijović) and four awards at Vršac Theatre Autumn festival: best production, Best director (Ana Đorđević) and Best actor awards (Marija Vicković and Radomir Vujović). Radovan Vujović won an award from the Dara Čalenić Fund for his potrayal of Miša.
