The story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin is world famous. The drama still captivates people today. Who was the Pied Piper? Where did he take the children? What happened to them? What was the instrument he played that they couldn't resist following? None of these questions can be answered. But is it actually important?
The legend incorporates a number of typical situations which many people will experience during the course of their lives. The key situations have been dramatised by Steiner, Sarnen and brought to the stage. Reminiscences of times gone by are cleverly linked with modern elements.
