Translated and adapted by Frano Čale and directed by Vinko Brešan, famous Croatian movie director, phenomenal play ‘La bottega del caffè’ was premiered last night – but the story about the play was circling around the town for days!

This famous play is a homage to the one played first time in 1978., one of the most memorable plays in history of Dubrovnik Summer Festival. So it’s no wonder last night was very crowded, and the play delighted even the biggest critics.

Just Dubrovnik brings you more information about the play, and here you can read a bit more it as well.
