It is a few days before New Year’s Eve. Several families that have not met before are gathering in the same institution in a remote location. They are making preparations to spend the last night of the year together evoking the sweet strains of the famous operetta Die Fledermaus (The Bat) by Johann Strauss, Jr.
Though they are to spend only a few days here, they have sacrificed a lot to be able to make it to the opportunity. Nothing, neither time nor money, was too much for them to put on stake, some even ran the risk of losing their reputations by getting admission to the place. Some of them are young, others are old, some are married, some are single. The only feature that makes them similar is that they are most keen on getting to know whether a human being can take the liberty to perform the act of God.
Kornel Mundruczo and the actors of the TR Warsawa’s show recalls the sentimental ambience of „the good old pre-war days” of the late 19th century; at the same time they create a utopistic play that deals with a most important problem of our age. The plot based on genuine documents makes us contemplate on the question: up to which point and how much can we make decisions on our own lives?
