It’s nighttime in the theatre and Alfred the caretaker can’t believe his eyes at the scenes unfolding backstage: all the props, costumes and wigs that live in this mysterious world are in a state of extreme agitation. The star, which is supposed to shine in the final scene, suffers from terrible stage fright and wants to hide itself away after messing up the dress rehearsal. The hot-headed revolver opens fire and gives the bouquet of flowers a terrible fright. The scheming wigs enjoy the fight, as always, and everyone agrees that the star is to blame for everything! Amid the upheaval, the premiere hangs in the balance. Alfred tries to put things right, and then everybody pulls off a moment of genuine theatrical glory.
