Description: For audiences of all ages, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater will perform "The White Doe," an endearing classic of the Czech Puppetry repertoire adapted and directed by Vit Horejs. This piece has not been seen in New York since 2001. It is a 17th century tale of a diabolical steward named Golo, who schemes to steal the wife of his lord, Count Sylkfrid, but is undone by the testimony of a ghost and by a white doe who reunites the couple on a hunting trip. The play features over 30 century-old marionettes. Runs 70 minutes.
