Polish prosecutors on Wednesday began investigating whether a theatre play offends religious feelings and incites the murder of a top politician.

The play "The Curse", directed by Croat Oliver Frljic, which premiered at Warsaw’s Powszechny Theater on Saturday, includes a scene simulating oral sex on a statue of the late Polish pope, St. John Paul II. There are other sex scenes involving crosses.

In another scene, an actress said there was originally a sequence in the play during which she would collect money for the murder of the leader of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party Jaroslaw Kaczynski, but it was later cut by Frljic from the script.
