Gay Conquests and Controversy

Part two of a stage adaptation of a controversial novel about gays and their sexual exploits will premiere at the Imka Theater in Warsaw this October.

Entitled Lubiewo II: The Fag Whip, the play is based on the novel Lubiewo by Michał Witkowski.

The stage version is directed by Piotr Sieklucki and co-produced by the Imka Theater and the Nowy Theater from Cracow.

Performances of the first part of the play, Lubiewo I, sold out and received long rounds of applause from audiences.

Lubiewo I tells the bitter and sad story of a gay couple, nicknamed Patrycja and Lukrecja, who no longer see any meaning in life. One day, a journalist shatters the dismal atmosphere of their shabby apartment as he comes to interview them and write their memoirs. Patrycja and Lukrecja reminisce how in the “golden years” they would lurk in parks trying to pick up straight men. They brag about their conquests and recount tales of gay cruising in the city of Wrocław in the 1970s and 1980s. They also describe the impact of AIDS, whose first victims included their friends.

In Lubiewo II: The Fag Whip, Patrycja and Lukrecja embark on a trip to a beach in the coastal village of Lubiewo, where old gay men gather to talk about their younger years and their first sexual exploits. The play is based on their conversations.

Lubiewo II: The Fag Whip will be staged at the Imka Theater Oct. 5 at 7 p.m.
