22ND SEPTEMBER 7:00 PM
POOR ME, THE BITCH AND HER NEW GUY / BIEDNY JA, SUKA I JEJ NOWY KOLEŚ
Michał Walczak
What is the difference between contemporary love and love? The expiry date. The Bitch comes across the Poor Me at a swimming pool, and they move in together. It is a great feeling, but Her New Beau appears. They are all running away from loneliness, but in their relationships they tend to focus only on themselves. While serving the audience a mix of drama, observational comedy and absurd theatre, Michał Walczak takes a look at the meaning of the words ”love” and ”friendship”. The director Piotr Jędrzejas consciously uses kitsch and plays with theatrical conventions.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME / DZIWNY PRZYPADEK PSA NOCNĄ PORĄ
Simom Stephens
Meet Christopher. He is a mathematical genius who knows almost everything about astronomy. He does not like crowds, he is afraid of strangers, he does not understand feelings or metaphors. He has just been accused of killing a neighbour’s dog, and he sets out to find out who is guilty. During his investigation he uncovers uncomfortable family secrets and, even though he has never left his street on his own, he embarks on an exciting expedition to London. A remarkable story of love, dreams and overcoming one’s limits. The world seen through the eyes of a young outsider who describes each day in detail. An adaptation of Mark Haddon’s international bestseller, a book which won seventeen literary awards. It was adapted by Simon Stephens, one of the greatest modern-day dramatists. A story which won over the hearts of London and Broadway audiences.

5TH OCTOBER 7:30 PM
RED / RED
John Logan
New York. A painter's studio. Mark Rothko, the legend of American abstract expressionism, a millionaire, an unquestionable authority on art versus a young, ambitious student aspiring for that role. Master and student. We watch their first meeting, a conversation on a new order placed for a series of paintings for the Four Seasons restaurant. Liking, anger, fear and surprise intertwine in their relationship. Subsequent discussions about art turn into a duel between two generations of artists.

John Logan's “Red” received the prestigious Tony Award for the best play. The author of screenplays for Hollywood blockbusters: "Aviator", "Skyfall" and "Gladiator" portrayed the last stage of Mark Rothko's life, in the eve of his suicide. He analyses a genius artist, unappreciated in his lifetime by the critics, who struggles with depression and alcoholism and cannot cope with the new trends in art, which he is unable to understand.

13TH OCTOBER 5:00 PM
HAMLET / HAMLET
William Shakespeare
The story of Prince Hamlet confronting a sudden and mysterious death of his father is one of world’s most important plays. “Hamlet” directed by Tadeusz Bradecki is told in a timeless convention, as timeless is the spiral of evil which spins around the young prince. Full of intrigues, plots and fighting for the throne, this is a story of the tragedy of human history, in which peace descends only for another war to begin.

The play is staged in a new translation for the first time in Poland.

20TH OCTOBER 7:00 PM
THE STORY OF JACOB / HISTORIA JAKUBA
Tadeusz Słobodzianek
Based on the true story of a priest philosopher who finds out he is not who he thinks he is. In search of his true identity, he begins to acutely feel how different and other he is in a world that seems to increasingly require a distinct definition of one’s ancestry, ethnicity and faith. His attempts to reconcile his uniqueness send him on a fast-paced and humorous journey of unexpected adventures, despite the underlying tragedy of his discovery.

Ondrej Spišák directs, continuing his more than fifteen year collaboration with Tadeusz Słobodzianek. Their joint productions, including “Nasza klasa” (Our Class), “Malambo”, “Merlin. Inna historia” (Merlin. A Different Story), “Prorok Ilja” (The Prophet Ilya), “Młody Stalin” (Young Stalin) and “Niedźwiedź Wojtek” (Voytek the Bear) have won numerous awards and enjoy the recognition of audiences both in Poland and abroad.

NO EXIT / BEZ WYJŚCIA
Jean-Paul Sartre
Two women and a man end up in a hotel room. They have no idea why they have been locked up. They start to observe each other and become fascinated with each other. Minute by minute, the atmosphere gets more and more dense. The tension among them increases. A game begins. First questions are asked, and accusations begin to fly. No one in this room has a clear conscience; everyone is hiding something; each one of them keeps a painful secret. Did they really get here by accident?

"No Exit" by Jean-Paul Sartre is a 1944 one-act play by one of the leading Paris-based existentialists and a Nobel Laureate for Literature.

OUR CLASS / NASZA KLASA
Tadeusz Słobodzianek
„Our Class” – awarded with the Nike Literary Award play about 20th century Poland inspired by true events. The story about classmates, for which nationality, religion and ideology became more important than friendship.
An unusual story about classmates who learn, play and grow up together. They dream of becoming a pilot, a doctor or a film star. They read Sienkiewicz's "Trilogy", watch films with Chaplin and listen to jazz. Why the boy who cut out the paper heart and wrote a love poem for the girl from his class, a few years later tied her hands and threatened to shoot her if she tried to escape? What happened that nationality, religion and ideology turned out to be more important than friendship? When did the classmate become a stranger? What happened with that class? The story about 20th century Poland inspired by true events.

THE VIST / WIZYTA STARSZEJ PANI
Friedrich Dürrenmatt
The richest woman on Earth, the seven times married and divorced leopardess arrives at her home town where trains do not stop and unemployment has beaten the record. Everyone’s expecting pots of money. But Claire Zachanassian is driven by revenge for her banishment and the humiliation she had been exposed to and her child’s death. She can fulfil the townfolks’ expectations providing they commit murder. Are they ready to pay such a prize? This is a story with elements of horror, comedy and reportage on crime. Like Medea in Greek mythology or Black Mamba in Tarantino’s film, Claire subordinates her life to getting even. Using the classical theme, Dürrenmatt shows us the workings of temptation and poses a question just how far the pursuit for money can be taken.

CABARET / CABARET
J. Masteroff, J. Kander, F. Ebb
Based on a play by John Van Druten and a book by Christopher Isherwood.
Meine Damen und Herren, Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to the Kit Kat Club; welcome to pre-war Berlin, a city that can party like no other! We will follow a love affair between a female cabaret singer and an American writer. We may live in a crazy world of cabaret, yet we cannot help but feel the growing atmosphere of danger behind our doors. Berlin is like Titanic: the band keeps playing and the dancers carry on whirling as the ship is about to crash into an iceberg. One of the best films in the movie history was based on the musical. ”Cabaret” is a source of standards such as ”Money, Money”, ”Welcome to Berlin” and ”Don’t Tell Mama”.

WOMAN WITH NO IMPORTANCE / KOBIETY BEZ ZNACZENIA
Alan Bennett
One of them goes through life noiselessly; the other one seeks attention. Two women, protagonists of Alan Bennett’s parallel monodramas, are extremely unlike each other: the plain Jane is complacent about her uneventful life; the ruthless investigator looks for imperfection and mischief in everyone around her. The play tells a story of two lonely women who do not want to sink into oblivion. The characters are portrayed by the outstanding Halina Łabonarska and Małgorzata Niemirska.

KINKY BOOTS / KINKY BOOTS
Harvey Fierstein, Cyndi Lauper
based on a screenplay by Geoff Dean and Tim Firth
One of the most outrageous and inspiring Broadway musicals. An explosive mixture of pop, soul, rock, impressive drag queens, big-city atmosphere and small-town blues. A live music show about friendship and the will to change the world.
Charlie has inherited a collapsing shoe factory. His uncompromising girlfriend Nicola wants him to sell the family business and move to London with her. Lola, a fabulous drag queen with a terrific voice, has an idea how to save the company whose bankruptcy would mean that all its staff would become unemployed. Charlie and Lola have almost nothing in common, but they join forces to create sexy female shoes for men. Apparently, demand should be huge.

KINKY BOOTS is staged upon agreement with Music Theatre International (MTI) which provided authorised materials for the show www.MTIShows.com. The copyrights for KINKY BOOTS in Poland are owned by Agencja ADiT.

CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS / POCIĄGI POD SPECJALNYM NADZOREM
Bohumil Hrabal
The Czechs can make a comedy out of a tragedy. The story of Milos, a young rail worker at a small-town railway station, who completes his transition from a boy to a man, from a coward to a hero. The plot takes place during World War II, but Hrabal's protagonists do not let the war take away the flavour, joy and sex from their lives. Poor performance during the first night with his loved one is more important than Hitler and occupation? Why not?

MEASURE FOR MEASURE / MIARKA ZA MIARKĘ
William Shakespeare
Something is rotten in Vienna; moral decay and corruption have been paralysing the country. Duke Vincentio leaves government in the hands of a regent. In order to heal the country, Angelo uses law as a threat; the prisons fill up quickly. Among prisoners there is Claudio, waiting to be executed for fathering a child out of wedlock. Vincentio returns disguised as a friar, observing how the situation will develop. 
“Measure for measure” is one of Shakespeare’s most subversive plays; it combines political thriller, cruelty, irony and black humour. Piotr Kamiński’s new translation of the play was directed by Oskaras Koršunovas. “This is a story about power, its tragedy and absurdities. Shakespeare asks if the rulers can be fair and ethical or whether they just use morality to gain power and use it”, says the director.

THE FATALIST / FATALISTA
Tadeusz Słobodzianek
1930s Warsaw, Krochmalna Street a rabbi’s son, a merchent‘s daugther. One Sabbath evening, Lea and Benjamin, a married couple, sit downn to a festive meal with their children. Benjamin has just returned home from work with a lipstick stain on his cheek that sets off an avalanche of questions and suspicions on the part of his jealous wife. It turns out, however, that Lea is not so innocent herself: she was spotted this afternoon on the town with a gentelman. The two protagonists turn their world upside down with a dangerous game that puts their own peace and happiness at stake.
The action of latest play by Nike Prize winner Słobodzianek takes place over the course of one evening during which the time has come to hash a few things out.  Clever, humorous dialogue is at the  core of this deft portrait of Jewish married life where bohemian lifestyle meets the earnestness of Shabat super.

HIDEOUS MEN / OBRZYDLIWCY
David Foster Wallace
Hideous men: addicted to sex, cynical, mediocre. Focused on themselves and their pleasures; often in yet another therapy. No one is ordinary here. Or rather: no one is normal here. Only if you want to know what men really think.

PERFORMED IN ENGLISH, SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION INTO POLISH / SPEKTAKL W JĘZYKU ANGIELSKIM, TŁUMACZENIE SYMULTANICZNE NA JĘZYK POLSKI

IRAŃSKA KONFERENCJA / THE IRAN CONFERENCE
Iwan Wyrypajew

"The New York Times" called Ivan Vyrypaev "the most promising European playwright". Vyrypaev is repeatedly undertaking the so-called "difficult topics" and he treats them as a starting point to a discussion about the complexity and ambiguity of the 21st century world. His trademark is the combination of a large dose of humor and intelligent irony with important questions and diagnoses of the present day. 
 
The Iran Conference is a theater play in which the author presents to the viewer the clash of different views in today's discussion on religion, politics and social issues around the world. The place of action is Copenhagen, where nine specialists, representatives from various fields meet to discuss the current situation in Iran and the Middle East. An attempt to present reports prepared by the lecturers quickly transforms into a lively conversation about spirituality, ethical dilemmas, personal experiences and even traumas related to the condition of humanity today. The Iran Conference is an intimate poetic reflection about the world around us and ourselves".
