Every day a well-behaved little person goes to the zoo and visits the animals:


 the dangerous, the funny and the big ones!
Everything is great, but it's always the same ... One day, it gets to know the hyena,


who is ugly and stinks and has ticks – but she is also exciting and different, and besides, she has a secret: she is an enchanted princess and the spell can only be broken with coffee, cake and Corned beef...Should one trust a hyena?
Courageously and heroic, the little person invites the hyena and everything is ready at 4 pm! The hyena comes, eats and drinks noisily, farts and crumbles – but she does not transform. A real reason to get angry, right? But the little person is not disappointed,


such a wild animal is an adventure after all!


A masterful story of outsider hood and acceptance.





A wonderful piece, an exciting, fast-paced staging, an intelligent, changeable stage design and two great and perfectly coordinated actresses, highly recommended."  Kulturvison
