Sorokin’s Ice on Polish stage for the first time
January 24, 2014
Warsaw’s Narodowy Theater’s Bogusławskiego Hall will be on Jan. 25 the venue of the much-anticipated premiere of a play based on the best-selling novel “Ice” by Russian postmodern writer Vladimir Sorokin.
Sorokin’s prose has been adapted for the stage by Konstantin Bogomolov, who also directs the play.
The semi-fantasy play is set in Moscow, where a mysterious organization is hunting for blue-eyed, blond men. Once kidnapped, they are subjected to a sadistic experiment—but then a piece of ice from outer space unexpectedly brings new hope to them.
The cast includes: Anna Chodakowska, Wiktoria Gorodeckaja, Anna Grycewicz, Bożena Stachura, Danuta Stenka, Milena Suszyńska,
Mariusz Bonaszewski, Dobromir Dymecki, Waldemar Kownacki,
Karol Pocheć, Jerzy Radziwiłowicz, Mateusz Rusin and
Upcoming performances: Jan. 25 (opening night) 28,29,30 at 7 pm
