Estonia 100 Theatre Series "Tale of The Century"

''Tale of The Century'' is a theatre production project where the past 100 years of Estonian history will be told in 13 plays.

In March 2014, Estonian theatres decided to give a centenary gift to the Republic of Estonia: a cooperation project between Estonian theatres. Last century was divided into decades and theatres are creating plays about each decade. In the framework of the project, 24 theatres will create 12 performances from the autumn of 2017 until the spring of 2018.

Tickets to the performances will be sold separately on each of the theatre's websites or on Piletilevi or Piletimaailm websites and ticket booths.
Ticket prices vary.

The project is coordinated by Estonian Association of Performing Arts Institutions
