The Tourist Board of Vrlika is pleased to inform you that theatre play Cinco and Marinko will return to Vrlika!
Cinco and Marinko, written by Mate Matišić, will be held in Vrlika on July 8, 2017, at 21:00 at Franje Tuđman square.
Cinco and Marinko is a comedy about two guest workers who are suffering immensely for their homeland and their loved ones. The two would forge the wildest plans to return home, using every scenario from using false documents when crossing the border to staging their own deaths and journeys into the coffin, all in hopes that the foreign pension would be sufficient enough for lifelong happiness with their beloved wives.
Imbued with black humor and lessons about survival, the show has achieved outstanding success in Yugoslavia and its release to date has been conducted more than seventy times.

Matišić’s humorous and grotesque at times story is surely known to a wider audience. The play was first performed at the Kerempuh Satirical Theatre in 1992, winning the “Days of Satire” award for best play. The film adaptation of the text was released in 1998 under the titled When the Dead Start Singing, which was directed by Krsto Papic.
The show will be performed by the Sinj folk theatre which has been awarded by Split-Dalmatia County for its successful completion of cultural activities for the past 60 years.
