Professor Josef Skupa’s Hurvinek and Spejbl: puppets from Prague

with one comment

In 1947, my father Dr Bedrich Belohlavek organised the first visit to the UK of Prof. Josef Skupa’s marionette troupe, featuring the popular Czech characters, Hurvinek and Spejbl. Waiting to go on: the cast backstage.
