Some of Polandís best theatrical productions last year were brought to the 37th Warsaw Theater Meetings festival March 30-April 12.

This yearís event featured a selection of 10 plays hand-picked by festival curator Wojciech Majcherek. Staged at the Dramatyczny, Powszechny, Polski and Nowy theaters, the festival performances were shown to overflowing houses with tickets selling out at a record fast rate and people lining up for standing-room-only passes. Selected shows were staged with English subtitles, providing also foreign visitors with a unique opportunity to see the best Polish theater had to offer and the work of directors who seldom came to work in Warsaw, if ever at all.

Due to high interest, the organizers added three dates to the festival agenda, all three specifically requested by the audience. The titles were Iwona, Ksiezniczka Burgunda (Yvonne, Princess of Burgundy) directed by Grzegorz Jarzyna, Wyspa (The Island) staged by the Pieśni Kozła Theater, and Najgorszy człowiek na świecie (The Worst Man in the World) directed by Anna Smolar from the Wojciech Bogusławski Theater in Kalisz. The latter also had the highest turnout of all festival performances. The most people attended Triumf woli (Triumph of the Will), directed by Monika Strzępka.

The 37th Warsaw Theater Meetings also featured a selection of plays for children.

This yearís Warsaw Theater Meetings festival was organized by the Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw with the financial support of City Hall and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
