They Do Things Differently There

A new play at the Dramatyczny Theater aims to grasp the essence of Russia as a state of mind that has both fascinated and frightened Western Europe for centuries.

Entitled The Russian Contract, the play is based on Epifan Locks, a short story by Andrei Platonov, who along with Mikhail Bulgakov is regarded by many as one the finest Russian writers of the 20th century.

Directed by Krzysztof Rekowski, The Russian Contract (Polish title Rosyjski kontrakt) is based on the true story of an English engineer by the name of Bertrand Perry, whom Czar Peter the Great tasks with overseeing a huge construction project in Russia. The contract could make Perry a fortune, but if he takes it he will have to leave his old life behind and part with his fiancee for several years.

Perry does leave for Russia, but what he does not realize is that people there see the world very differently than in England.

Upcoming performances: Jan. 10 and 11, 7 p.m.
Dramatyczny Theater, Przodownik Stage; 21 Olesińska St.
