The Story of the Little Old Man


In 1996 the play The Story of the Little Old Man premiered in Vanemuine. At that time the leading parts were played by Hannes Kaljujärv, Aivar Tommingas and Anneli Kuusk. Now fifteen years later the children who were in the audience then and held their breath while following the story, are all grown up and have become parents. Now it is a time for the new children to accompany The Little Old Man to his search of a friend – to share his sorrow and his happiness.
