Lost World of Wealthy Jews

Marienbad, or a Quid Pro Quo Between Two Cities in Letters and Telegrams is the title of a new play being staged at the Jewish Theater in Warsaw, based on a novel by Sholem Aleichem.

The literary original, entitled Marienbad, has been adapted for the stage by famous Polish theater and movie director Maciej Wojtyszko. He has successfully revived the ambiance of the popular Czech health resort of Marienbad, now named Mariánské Lázne, which used to be particularly popular among tired wives looking forward to time away from their grumbling husbands. It was also a favorite health resort with superannuated gentlemen longing to feel 20 years younger, if only for a moment, and indulge in a seemingly innocent and harmless love affair.

Sparkling with a Jewish sense of humor and anecdotes, the show provides a unique look at a world that has disappeared, that of wealthy Jews who used to live in Warsaw’s Nalewki neighborhood.

Marienbad... is a story of love, longing and desires which can never be fulfilled. The play shows people torn between the two distant locations of Warsaw and Marienbad and tells their stories through 36 letters, 14 love notes and 46 telegrams, all to music composed by Jerzy Derfl.

Jewish Theater; 12/16 Grzybowski Sq.
