With a production of "The Comedy of Cleverness" by Ivan Taller we took part in Conjuring Performance of Dačice - South Bohemia Regional Festival of Amateur Drama and Music Theatre held in a town of Dačice in March 2004. The performance was unexpectedly very successful. The production got the following awards: stage direction award and musical plan of the stage award, but above all it was recommended to the National Festival of Dramatic Třebíč, Femad Poděbrady.

On 16 March 2004 we participated in Festival Štít with the same stage. The festival took place in a near town of Prachatice. The panel of judges took a different view of it than the jury had had at the Regional Festival.

We obviously suffered our first team stage fright at National Festival Femad Poděbrady held on 14 - 16 May 2004. So we say modestly: "We also experienced the participation at the national festival. But next time ... :)))"

At the Festival of Sokolovská Čurda given in September 2004 we made good use of our experience gained from a few previous shows, and we performed well with no stage fright at all but a great enthusiasm. Congenial atmosphere of the festival as well as likeable organizers, audience and colleagues from other ensembles contributed to the assessment of our performance. The festival bulletin says:

"The Mediaeval morals in a lively and funny manner
The Comedy of Cleverness, Český Krumlov Theatre Company.
It is a comedy indeed, I could almost say the Comedy. The text of the play is based on the mediaeval morals and quite nimbly and in a funny way transformed by Ivan Taller so that it can be easily accepted by the present audience. I think the audience took the text really well.
The subject of the play are three women who make a bet whose husband is the most stupid. They want to take them for a ride and the one who falls into the trap proves his stupidity.
Especially the stage design is based on the moral principles. It really works with principles of fairground theatre as can be proved if you read some preserved notes. Everything is admirably simple, but functional. Only the linen is turned and we are in completely different space. The stage design thanks to its flexibility obliges and offers the actors innumerable possibilities how to use and show their comical talent. A particular idea with the folding coffin and as it gets going is also worth mentioning. Now let´s go on to the dramatic art. The principle of theatre in the theatre is used so the actors come and leave their parts again and again. When they do not perform their parts, they help to change the scenery and give a non-verbal commentary on what is just happening on the stage. Everything seems to be relaxed and obvious which definitely belongs to that sort of theatre. It wins the audience hearts.
I would like to mention one reservation to this production . As I have already said the text is a collage of mediaeval morals interspersed with the entrance of music and commentary of actors who perform as fair criers. Mostly it goes on with a certain link-up and the story flows. Nevertheless sometimes (especially in the first half of the play) I had a feeling that the certain moments of the story are not continuous, but slightly confused congeries.
Finally I would like to quote the extract of the Český Krumlov Citizens´ Programme: " We only want to give a topic to a thought and make the audience feel happy." We succeeded in doing both things. The Comedy of Cleverness performed by the ensemble of Český Krumlov gave me very pleasant feelings thanks to its kind and spontaneous humour and the actors succeeded in doing a good job in a simple and functional way. Thank you for it!
