"Pyjamas People" in the Wroclaw Contemporary Theatre

One of the greatest Polish theatrical directors from middle generation, screenwriter and set designer Marcin Libera is a director of a play „Pyjamas People” written by Mariusz Sieniewicz. The play has already won a prize in a Second Drama Competition The Contact Zone launched by the Theater and the Wroclaw City.
The "Pyjamas People" shows the collective fear of a hard-to-reach "life without pain" which isn’t possible for everyone. The physical suffering against the terror of a happy and painless life is the greatest social inequality. This way of life in the form of advanced pharmacology is offered by modern culture. Only a few people have access to such possibility. According to the principle of rich being given morphine and the poor being given aspirin. The play reveals a rebellion against the rules and an utopian dream of a world where pain can be destroyed. The annihilation of the pain is the religion of the future. Due to that mankind is overwhelming with suffering pain and a metaphysical perspective of afterlife is no longer sufficient. People can’t stand their own created reality, literally and figuratively.
The show premieres on 3 December 2017 in the Wroclaw Contemporary Theatre of the name of Edmund Wiercinski.
