Ferenc Molnár: The Glass Slipper

comedy in three parts

The performance is recommended for audience over 12 years!

Irma, the little Cinderella of Józsefváros, is not dreaming of a rich prince: she is in love with a poor carpenter, Lajos Sipos, irredeemably and hopelessly. But the ageing, sullen master craftsman has already been chosen by someone else: Adele, the boarding house hostess, even has marriage plans, while she seeks happiness in the arms of her young lover. Ferenc Molnár's comedy is an ironic, heartbreaking tale of a strange love quadrangle that has captivated audiences not only in Hungarian theatres but also abroad, and now it is returning to its true home, where it was born, as this play - like so many of Ferenc Molnár's dramas - was first performed by the Vígszínház.

(If the performance starts at 19.00, the expected end time is 22.20)

23 September 2023 at 7 pm Vígszínház.



The Vígszínház is one of the most historic and popular theatres in Budapest. Its three venues (the Main Stage, the House Stage Studio and Chamber, the Pest Theatre) have a total of more than 1700 seats. The theatre is also known as the cradle of modern Hungarian bourgeois drama, with famous authors such as Jenő Heltai, Sándor Bródy, Dezső Szomory, Menyhért Lengyel, Ernő Szép, Sándor Hunyady, Ferenc Herczeg, and others. In the 21st century, the majority of the world's theatres with large auditoriums have lost a good part of their audience. Despite this trend, the premieres of the Vígszínház are successful, and its performances are well attended. The theatre is located on the Újlipótváros side of Szent István körút in Budapest.
