Astrid Lindgren
THE KID AND CARLSON
OR EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE CARLSON
Modern fairy tale for children and adults

The KID and CARLSON live now under a roof of Theatre for children and youth

           

«… In the city of Stockholm, in the most ordinary street, in the most ordinary house there lives the most ordinary family consisting of the most ordinary daddy, the most ordinary mum and the most ordinary Kid».

The Kid, a little boy, the favourite of all family who feels very lonely among adults. The kid dreams of the friend-puppy, but parents «not for the world do not wish to have in the house a dog». The kid is sad, but suddenly in his life appears a nice, «rather well-fad, in full blossoming of forces», an incorrigible rascal, the mischievous person and inventor CARLSON. Carlson becomes the friend to the Kid and they together start to fly on roofs, to steal buns, of terrible ghosts to frighten swindlers, to tame malicious housekeepers and to pacify self-satisfied «house tormentor».

Carlson is an embodiment of the Childhood, its Pleasure, Game and Imagination. But, unfortunately, the Childhood has a sad habit somewhere to disappear … How to make so that its hand bell sounded in each of us and that «everyone had the right to be Carlson», that is by itself ?!

The kind carefree history about friendship and the mutual understanding, directed by Sergey Gerasimov, will be interesting both to children, and their parents.
