WC/BG

Two years ago, in the autumn of 2006, the Satirical Theatre in Sofia staged a play, My Home Is My Castle (WC/BG), by Vladimir Karamfilov. It didn't do good business, probably because the "sweet and sour story of an unemployed teacher" did not seem original enough.

WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?

He did so by sending a carrier pigeon. But while the bird was still in flight, the Byzantines intercepted it and shot arrows into it.
