The Swallows of Fatherland

Andrus Kivirähk

This production is a collaboration between the Estonian Drama Theatre and the Nargenfestival, and it is part of the EV 100 theatre series “The Story of a Century”.

The Republic of Estonia is turning 100, and to celebrate the occasion, the theatre club “Northern lights” decides to put on a musical dedicated to the Freedom War called “Homeland Sparrows”. Unfortunately not much has changed in Estonian life over the past century: if men back in the day didn’t feel like going to war, nowadays they don’t feel like putting on a play. So the hard working women have to bear the whole burden on their shoulders and manage to celebrate the centenary on their own.

Premiere 15 June 2018, at the Keila cultural centre.
