The Divadlo (theatre) Líšeň was founded in 1998 by Pavla Dombrovská and Luděk Vémola in the city of Brno in the Czech Republic. The ensemble is one of the leading children's and puppet theatres in the Czech Republic and often gives guest performances abroad.

A whimsical old man lives in a dark forest. He yearns for company and friendship. His imagination runs wild from loneliness and boredom: things start to become lively in his wooden house – the frog and the toad, fish and other animals come inside. They become his friends.

The piece is based upon the story »Frog and toad« by the US children's book author Arnold Lobel (1933-87). This latest production by Divadlo Líšeň premiered on 20.01.2009 in Brno.
