The Little Suicides

Iconic play about human emotions and relationships portrayed through small everyday objects

Presented as part of the official ILT Festival 2021 program.


A seltzer whose only wish is to fit in among the colorful and beautifully wrapped candy. A Swedish match who falls madly in love with a Brazilian coffee bean. A small table and a simple lamp whose light is dimmed by a brown paper bag and tells a story of time passing by.

‘The Little Suicides’ invites us into a magical and intimate narrative space where regular everyday objects, we all know and surround ourselves with on the daily, are brought to life. The show consists of three acts that tell three different stories that are all deeply relatable and intriguing for both children and grown-ups. What would happen if our everyday commodities had human feelings and thoughts?

Envy, unrequited love, time and change are some of the themes you can experience in ‘The Little Suicides’.


The play was originally created by Gyula Molnár in the 1980’s and has since gained a lot of praise and recognition and toured internationally.

It is now being brought back to life by the daughter of its creator, Olivia Molnár, who will be performing the iconic object theater at Teater Refleksion during ILT Festival 2021.

You can find all the show guidelines for various schools and institutions here.

Please pay special attention to the following guidelines for evening and weekend shows:

• All 2020 shows have been put on sale with a reduced number of seats in the halls.
• When buying more than one ticket at a time, you’ll get a matching number of adjacent seats. Accordingly, there’ll be a distance of less than one metre between the persons in the group. All groups will be given seat numbers upon arrival for the show.
• If you wish to keep one metre between you and your neighbours (from nose to nose), each ticket must be bought individually. For logistical reasons, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be seated next to each other in this case. You’ll be given a seat number upon arrival for the show.
