HAMLET / HAMLET
William Shakespeare

Hamlet
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.

MAN OF LA MANCHA / CZŁOWIEK Z LA MANCHY
Dale Wasserman, Mitch Leigh, Joe Darion


CZLEK_Z_LA_MA_TD_SGH_70x100
A beautiful, timeless tale about the power of the word, which can turn dreams into reality. Who is the madman? He who battles windmills and wishes to right wrongs? Or he who sees the world as immutable and predictable? In the story of the dauntless Don Quixote, profound and painful themes are cut through with bawdiness and wit, while tenderness intertwines with brutality.
A Broadway hit inspired by the Miguel de Cervantes novel, Man of La Mancha is a musical full of panache. It’s all love story, animated dialogue and huge doses of humour. Come see for yourself what happens when words gain real power!

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME / DZIWNY PRZYPADEK PSA NOCNĄ PORĄ
Simon Stephens

Curious

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.

THE FATALIST. A SINGER TALE IN V ACTS / FATALISTA. SINGEROWSKA HISTORIA W V AKTACH
Tadeusz Słobodzianek

fatalist

We meet the married couple, Lea and Benjamin, when the latter returns home with a trace of lipstick on his cheek and firmly refuses to eat his wife’s Sabbath soup. That same afternoon, Lea was spotted in the company of a man at a popular Warsaw cafe. In The Fatalist. A Singer Tale in V Acts, we discover not only what that evening looked liked when Lea and Benjamin took the time to explain a few things to each other, but also — thanks to some unexpected visitors to their apartment on Krochmalna Street — we learn about the past and the future of a Jewish marriage.
Tadeusz Słobodzianek, winner of the Nike Literary Award for his play, Our Class, writes about the relationship between a rabbi’s son and a merchant’s daughter, whose fates are written into the history of the pre- and post-war lives of Jews and Poles. He paints a portrait of 1930s Warsaw and the atmosphere of anxiety that grew over this time. He creates a story, in which bohemian love affairs and marital intrigues intertwine with the fate of the world.

SCENES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE / I ŻE CIĘ NIE OPUSZCZĘ
Gé​rard Watkins

scenes

Annie and Pascal meet on their way to work. Rachida and Liam meet by chance outside of Rachida’s house. Little by little, the couples’ love brings them closer together. Alongside their burgeoning intimacy, however, other aspects of their relationships develop — differences in temperament, likes and dislikes, and minuscule discrepancies — that combine to form a basis for conflict. Seemingly insignificant words and increasingly menacing gestures set a certain violence into motion that quickly turns into a control mechanism and an expression of despotic love.
The playwright, Gérard Watkins, examines intimate partner violence and the impetus to harm another person in a ‘normal’ relationship.

HIDEOUS MEN / OBRZYDLIWCY
David Foster Wallace

hideous

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.
Based on the cult American writer David Foster Wallace's "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men".

RED / RED
John Logan

Red

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.

THE STORY OF JACOB / HISTORIA JAKUBA
Tadeusz Słobodzianek

story of

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.

 

OUR CLASS / NASZA KLASA
Tadeusz Słobodzianek

our class

„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 visit

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

cabaret

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 OF NO IMPORTANCE / KOBIETY BEZ ZNACZENIA
Alan Bennett

women

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
kinky

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.

BENT / BENT
Martin Sherman

bent (1)
 

1930s Berlin. Dance parties, cabarets and gay clubs are thriving. The Nazis come to power, but no one yet knows what this means. Martin Sherman, the play's main character, is not bothered. Max lives from day to day in rented apartments, among drunk nights, episodes of casual sex and attempts to get some money. One night's events will turn his world upside down. The play tells the story of the persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany. This is still an unkown topic, shadowed by other stories. The discrimination against pink triangles was a taboo topic for years, and many gays were imprisoned after the war. '"Bent" is a story of a man who is afraid to love', says the director Nathalie Rigler.
