‘The Orange Girl’ – a story of love and death – moved the young people deeply
At the beginning of October, the young people staying in substitute homes and shelters went to see a play ‘The Orange Girl, staged at theatre NUKU by the book of Norwegian writer Jostein Gaarder, which deeply moved everyone, urged to reflect and caused joy and sadness of recognition.

Quite a few youngsters, who are difficult to be lured out to the theatre, followed the story with great interest and claimed afterwards that they liked it. Why? Since many could identify themselves with the main character Georg.
The play contained funny but also serious and thought-provoking scenes. Everyone could find something that touched them. The actors used scarce resources to bring to the audience serious topics – love and pain of loss. The play reminded also the adults that it is important to hear out the children and talk to them about your worries, feelings, joy and pain, and made them think about the importance of stories and memories in our lives.
After the play, the children met the actors and had a tour backstage and the NUKU theatre of puppetry. The children got a book of ‘The Orange Girl’ as a gift, which is now even more valuable due to the autographs of the actors.
