Gulliver Travels to Warsaw

TNT Theatre Britain, called by Britain's Guardian daily "one of the most interesting developments on the current theatrical scene," will be bringing its production of Gulliver's Travels to Warsaw's Buffo theater Nov. 23-27.

Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels has been called the greatest satirical work ever written. TNT has dramatized this literary masterpiece to create a play that asks us the mature questions that Swift was posing 300 years ago: What is the moral basis of government? What is the value of money? What is the aim of science? And finally, when humans behave like vicious animals, why should they be valued higher than beasts?

If the themes of Gulliver's Travels are deeply serious, the form is often comic and thrilling. The production employs comedy, acrobatics, stilts and live music.

TNT Theatre was founded in 1980 in Britain. Since then it has established itself as one of the most popular international touring theater companies in the world. Last season alone the company produced seven productions in almost 30 countries, ranging from Shakespeare classics such as Romeo and Juliet to their own new play, Hitler Killed My Canary. The artistic director of TNT is Paul Stebbings. The company has performed in some of the world's most prestigious theaters.
