About the show “Ice Cream”:

Ice Cream is a comedy about life and from a life that every viewer knows. Excitingly, wittily and convincingly, the play follows the fate of a mother and daughter – from the day of the daughter’s departure to kindergarten and the mother’s first day at work, all the way to the day in the nursing home. One after another, scenes about love, women, men, family, children line up… Ice cream is a treat with a taste of theater, which, whether you want to or not, you will have to try.   And the taste is not worth discussing.


The play stars Ivana Nedovic and Nadja Nedovic Tekinder.
