Polish plays

Off you go!

Jurek, Paweł

A three-act comedy

This witty and twisted comedy explores the genre of a soap opera, mixes various kinds of “Dynasty”-like plots, and quotes TV series. It gives us insight into the lives of film producers. 

To be born again

Ślepowrońska, Dagna

A psychological drama 

Apart from Aniela, all the characters of the play remain seated in the auditorium until their time comes to go on the stage and perform their parts. 

The man in black

Jurek, Paweł

A three-act drama

Paweł Jurek’s play breaks the silence around racism and the social division between the poor and the rich that has been increasingly evident in Poland recently. Comprehensive and straightforward, this text offers a thorough look into the problem.

Gothic

Lewandowski, Robert

The main characters: Gucio (an alcoholic, thief and dangerous murderer, very low IQ), a Blond Man (appeals to Gucio's soul), Deskorolek (a junkie, Gucio's mate; they work together); a Woman (she gives the police Gucio's address) 
The supportive characters: Gucio's mummy (a prostitute), Gucio's Girlfriend, Her Lover, also: some of the Men and Women that Gucio killed; a millitary commando and the police (they catch Gucio and interview him); gangsters; 

The bowling

Łukosz, Jerzy

This witty tale by Jerzy Łukosz can be understood on many levels. One of them deals with the process of transformation Poland has been going through. We observe mental twists and turns of a Polish family under the oppression of capitalism. An individual bound by the newly born system is getting less compassionate and more self-centred. Another important field of the author’s interests is a dynamic nature of human relations.

The New Colony

Wróblewski, Grzegorz

The main focus is on the physical and mental process of existence. Larsen has no control over the scientific process since it has been monitored by two specialists: Mr Spolik and Zvidd. They are the masters of illusions which Larsen experiences. Grzegorz Wróblewski has created an unusual vision of science fiction, both terrifying and surprising. Larsen, Mother and two scientists experience an advanced disintegration of mental and physical structures. The material world seems to be a heavy burden that the New Man has to get accustomed with.

Luminosity

Łukosz, Jerzy

A three- act play

A psychological drama. A theatre director creates a passion to worship the theatre. The play talks about the borders that one must establish while manipulating others, about the need for having gurus and high ideas in the modern world. In “Luminosity” we can find a recollection of Jerzy Grotowski’s theatre concept.
