The meaning of life and death at Capitol Theater

Tamta Pani (That Lady), a new production of the Capitol Theater, is a black comedy that takes on questions of life and death in a daring yet tongue-in-cheek manner.

Written by Miko³aj Lizut and directed by Maciej Kowalewski, the play explores attitudes to death in an era when contemporary mass culture has turned it into something almost embarrassing.

The protagonists in the play are Cytryn and Kaplica, two mortuary technicians who like to drink and are hardly ever sober. While at work, they engage in long discussions about death and the meaning of life.
Death brings all kinds of people to their mortuary, the poor and the rich, the good-looking and the ugly, the good and the bad. These “guests” include a respected philosophy professor, a young female celebrity and a cynical politician who died after overdosing on virility pills. One night, the dead start to talk. Is this a manifestation of some supernatural power, or are the main characters just hallucinating from all the alcohol they have taken in?

Upcoming performances:
April 26, 4 p.m., April 29, 7 p.m.
