Powszechny Theater for English audience

The Powszechny Theater will stage, with English supertitles, a play titled Kuroń. Passion according to St. Jack on September 22.

Jacek Kuroń – the legend of opposition, a dissident, a left-wing politician, social activities, but also a man whose name lies on the sidelines of public discourse. The recent play by Małgorzata Sikorska-Miszczuk shows the events from his life that have sunk – literally and figuratively – in a cruel, at times funny world of the non-existent story: Passion according to St. Jack.

Facts, myths, and memories about the title hero are collated with the question about the degree in which we tend to manipulate in this day and age words and storytelling about our common (relatively recent) history.

The story about Jack Kuroń is not bibliographical in nature. Rather, it constitutes an attempt to deal with his legend and legacy; an opportunity to ask questions about the functioning of his ideals about the present social life and the price he paid while fighting for their survival.

Due to the nature of the play, any latecomers will not be admitted to the room where the play is staged.

CAST: Aleksandra Bożek, Ewa Skibińska, Grzegorz Artman, Grzegorz Falkowski, Michał Jarmicki, Oskar Stoczyński, Kazimierz Wysota.
