Premiere: 5th of December 1997 in the Croatian National Theatre in Varaždin (stage “Europa media”).

Short summary of the play:
After the Operation Flash and Storm the warriors are returning home to their wives ….
“The play testifies that the best weapon against the cruelty of war is self-irony. In this way the problems of everyday life in almost two decades after the war- even when not directly related to the storm and flashes – can be shown in a humoristic way, or through the magnificent permutation of the well known sixth stanza of the famous manifesto, the slogan that reveals the reasons of the folk spleen: It is the way it is, the way it always was, it will be the way it will be, and it will be in some way! (M.Krleža, Khevenhiller)”(Zarez 93/02).

The play participated in numerous festivals and guest performances, it was performed in Celje and Ljubljana, Tuzla and Zagvozd, Metković, Rijeka and Pula, and on the north in Vukovar, Županja and Vinkovci and back in Varaždin.
The text of Ljubomir Kerekeš “The return of the Warrior” 2002 has been translated into the Czech language on the initiative of the Czech Embassy under the title «Navrat bojovnika aneb  Švejk po balkansku«.
