The Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw opens its new season Oct. 12 with the premiere of Extreme Games, a play about a young woman suffering from cancer.

The piece, which is being staged at the theater’s Na Woli venue, is directed by Joanna Grabowiecka, a young director who last year graduated from the National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw. The first part of the play was written by Ewa Gawlikowska-Wolff, who was struggling with a brain tumor and who lost the battle, leaving the work unfinished. After her death, the play was completed by Elżbieta Chowaniec. The title role will be played by Anna Gorajska.

The Dramatyczny Theater has also started rehearsals for Eugene Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, based on a new translation by Piotr Kamiński. The play is directed by Artur Tyszkiewicz, who interprets the Romanian-born avant-garde dramatist’s masterpiece as a tale about the mechanisms which turn humans into a herd, making them lose their individuality and shutting down creative thinking. Rhinoceros will premiere Nov. 8 on the theater’s Holoubek Stage.

In November, the theater will premiere The Banality of Love, a play by Israeli playwright Savyon Liebrecht, translated by Michał Sobelman. The play revolves around the complicated relationship of two great 20th-century philosophers Hanna Arendt and Martin Heidegger. It will be staged on the theater’s Small Stage and directed by Wawrzyniec Kostrzewski. The premiere is scheduled for Nov. 22.
