Once Upon a Time There Lived a Rooster

Orignal title: Жив-був півник, 2022Translator: Anna Halas, English

Despite its naive and whimsical title, Once Upon a Time There Was a Rooster is a poignant play about a family's endurance during an occupation, maintaining their humanity, courage, and faith. At its heart is a strong woman striving to shield her young son and elderly father from the war's horrors, a brave young man poised to join the partisans and defend his homeland, and an old man who, despite blurring the past and present, never loses his fighting spirit. Central to their story is a ceramic rooster surviving the bombings to become a national symbol of resilience.
