Karagöz who is involved in a fight between two lovers in the neighborhood, is punished by the grandparents of the lovers. Things become hectic when Karagöz also drives Hacivat into trouble, who tries to save him. In this show mainly dominated by fairy tales, witches come across as one of the constant elements. The story reveals the motifs of Anatolia's rich fairy-tale world, with twists as in William Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. While carrying Karagöz from the tradition to the future, Hayali Hasan Hüseyin Karabağ portrays the most beautiful childhood memories of adult audiences, and introduces our traditional shadow theater to the little audiences.
