How is it that a child is sometimes more mature and perceptive than an adult? How is it that adults are often helpless against the matters they need to face It is a story of a little boy who had no time to play, because he came to rule a country. The author dedicated it not only to children, but adults as well. And treats them equally seriously. It raises questions about justice, honesty and tolerance towards one another. After many years we revive these questions on the stage and they still seem very up-to-date.
theatre information

When the whole world seems to be arranged in a perfect maze of orders and prohibitions, everyone begins to miss their space. A world which sees no differences between an adult and a child becomes bleak and colourless. A world where there is no time to play becomes unbearable. And Matt I, one of the youngest kings in the history of the world, came to live in such a world. Even the king can hardly bear the loneliness. Matt I begins to observe the world around him and starts to understand it. We need reforms! He turns this world upside down.

In their Treatise on stealing fruit, the actors invite their audience to join their escapade to an apple orchard. Yes, let's steal some apples! At night, in the faint light of the moon, we’ll climb the highest tree and steal the fruit. Will we make it back to the ground without meeting the farmer? Let us see for ourselves!
Info – theatre

The audience were also invited to the orchard. The play could have made the older ones think of the times when they stole apples, but, on the other hand, it could have made them see the eroticismof this “sneaking to an orchard” situation. The idea seems to be a good one. The stage production of the text, although strongly erotic, does not go beyond the limits of good taste and covers the “double worlds”: innocent, child-like, thirsty for sweet fruit and the world of adult initiation.
