Prague Fringe (May 23 to May 31) is a series of 1 hour performances in the form of dramatic plays, concerts, comedies, puppetry and dance staged all over Mala Strana. Home to Prague Fringe is Malostranska Beseda right on Malostranske namesti - here you can get a copy of the Fringe program or attend Fringe Sunday for free (May 25 at 14:45 - 16:15) and see a 1 minute performance from each act. Here is a run-down on performances suited for children ages 5 and up plus a larger collection for those 12+. Or alternatively, book a sitter and enjoy some of the great adult performances too.

Come, pick up our puppets, step into our world and make it yours.

Suitable for ages 12+
A Music Hall journey through the darker side of Victorian life. For some Victorian Values represented the rewards of hard work and industry, for others exploitation, child labour and the daily struggle to survive. For everyone the Music Hall provided the light relief and satirical edge that made life bearable. Using contemporary records and songs, and in a show that pays tribute to the Music Hall, journey through the darker side of Victorian life – child labour, prostitution, the workhouse – and experience the other side of Victorian Values!

The hilarious behind-the-scenes exposé of the play-within-a-play that brought Denmark to its knees and set the stage for murder, debauchery and mayhem when Prince Hamlet commissions a company of actors to perform the classic tragedy ‘The Murder of Gonzago’. The actors take the job not knowing what the play really is and with minutes to go, must come up with what might be the most important performance of their lives. Presented by Prague Shakespeare Company so it will be good.

Three idiots met in a café in Paris in Liverpool: One had walked out of Richard III after a wardrobe disagreement; the other two had just been fired from Macbeth for only knowing five lines between them, those lines being from Hamlet. They made a show. They said it was Shakespeare. The critics had a different opinion. And who’s the French guy? Well at least he has his own costume…
