Six cooks rules a big kitchen. They are preparing various delicacies but they pay plenty of attention to a big pot of alphabet soup. The soup is not an ordinary one, neither the cooks. Each letter of the alphabet in the soup changes into a little story, fairy tale or at least a song or riddle. And so the kitchen changes into a big aquarium because of the letter A; letter D enables to see far away through the binoculars (in Czech Dalekohled) for example to an Island (in Czech Ostrov) which appears in the kitchen under the letter O … Before the bell rings at the end of “cooking”, the cooks have to deal with a giant fly which does not belong to the kitchen at all but the fly likes it there very much.

The production received awards at Mateřinka 05 Festival (for staging and script), it was also awarded in festivals in Maribor, Slovenia and Slupsko, Poland.
