Polish plays

The true story of Johnny the stupid

Figura, Radosław

This contemporary drama tells the story of how we adjust to various roles that life brings us. The action takes place in the basement where a group of some homeless people have found shelter. There’s Kaśka, Adidas, Picuś and the Professor. Their community is based on solidarity: together they obtain food etc.. but Kaśka’s role is to satisfy men’s sexual needs. One day two newcomers show up in the basement: Lilka and Jaś, both from good families, with a comfort of social security and safe future.

The madness

Jurek, Paweł

In a series of symbolic scenes the author presents a world deprived of human values, full of mechanical activities like copulation, selling, buying and killing. A sexual pervert wandering across a park after sunset, finding no other release but to bite the soil like an angry animal; he interferes with mindless girls, fans of supermarkets bargains taking a dummy for a real person, decent citizens whose moral codes appear to be equal with those of criminals.

Luncheon meat

Ślepowrońska, Dagna

A grotesque psychodrama featuring an Old Mother and her forty-year-old Daughter. Both women, who still live together, build up a toxic relationship, the Daughter devouring enormous amounts of food and the Mother persistently cleaning the floor. It is a strange game they play, bringing each other constant suffering and yet living in a strange symbiosis. The Mother is always on her daughter’s beck and call, always ready to go shopping for food.

A monodrama

Szulc, Stefan

Male writers often succeed in creating interesting female portraits. We all remember Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina or Flaubert’s Madame Bovary. If you want to know what kind of female has been created by Stefan Szulc, we strongly recommend his play, “A Monodrama”. You will find some decent fun while watching the Female character – rebellious and wrathful, and at the same time lost and uncertain. Her final decision to leave the Male is not certain. Having locked her partner in the basement, the Female makes the space for her private performance.

Off you go!

Jurek, Paweł
