Life After Chernobyl

The Chernobyl Prayer, a new play being staged by the Studio Theater in Warsaw, examines the life-changing impact of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

The play, directed by Polish theater actress and director Joanna Szczepkowska, is based on literary reportage by Belarusian journalist Svetlana Aleksievich. Aleksievich interviewed many of the disaster victims, rescuers who came to the scene of the accident, policy makers and other people who witnessed the disaster and its aftermath.

Chernobyl produced a “vision of a new world and a new humanity,” says Szczepkowska. “But it is not an entirely disastrous vision. People have become more aware of being part of nature.”

Audiences who watch this play “cannot escape the horrendous and tragic effects of the disaster,” Szczepkowska adds. “But our goal has been to show it all in a way that gives viewers hope that everything can be born anew.”

Upcoming performances: May 22 and 23, 7 p.m.
Studio Theater; Palace of Culture; 1 Defilad Square
