Love, War and Water

A new play entitled Królestwo Wszechwanny (The Kingdom of All Tubs) based on work by Israeli dramatist Hanoch Levin will have its world premiere Dec. 12 at the Jewish Theater in Warsaw.

In his home country, Levin (1943-1999) earned a reputation as something of a troublemaker whose plays used bitterly comic, sometimes vulgar, language to criticize Israel’s militarism and ridicule Israeli politicians.

The new play at the Jewish Theater uses prose, skits, songs and poems Levin wrote during different periods of his life.

Juggling comedy with drama, Królestwo Wszechwanny is a story of love and war. Love breeds conflicts and conflicts can lead to new love affairs. People need both, just like they need water. Water, in fact, plays a central role in the sets designed for the play by Ewelina Brudnicka. The significance of water ranges from a source of life to deadly danger, and includes the water people need to bathe on a daily basis.

The play is directed by Paweł Paszta and the cast includes Ewa D±browska, Monika Chrz±stowska and Dawid Szurmiej.
