Taboo-Busting Play is Back
July 4, 2014   
Article's tools:

Cleansed, a controversial play by the late English playwright Sarah Kane about cruelty, perversion and a desperate pursuit of love, is returning to the TR Warszawa theater.

The play is directed by famous Polish theater director Krzysztof Warlikowski. His version of Cleansed first opened at the TR Warszawa in 2001 as a joint production with the Współczesny Theater from Wrocław and the Polski Theater from Poznań. It was one of the first productions of Kane’s plays in Poland and marked a turning point in Polish theater by breaking several taboos. Kane’s play explores incest, homosexuality and sexual perversions but does so in a way that is moving for the audience. In his take on Cleansed, Warlikowski found a poetic way to convey a desperate pursuit of love in a world dominated by evil.

The play has made an impression on audiences across the globe, including at international festivals. Warlikowski’s version has won a number of prizes, including the award of the French Association of Theater Critics for the best foreign-language production in France in the 2002/2003 season.

The cast includes Stanisława Celińska and Jacek Poniedziałek from Warsaw’s Nowy Theater, Mariusz Bonaszewski and Redbad Klynstra.

Upcoming performances:
July 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13, 8 p.m.
TR Warszawa, 8 Marszałkowska St., Warsaw
