InfoThe Madman and the Nun (Wariat i zakonnica) a play about the tyranny of society over the individual written by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (known as Witkacy) and directed by Igor Gorzkowski is shown at the Powszechny Theater in Warsaw.
Written in 1923 "The Madman and the Nun or, There is Nothing Bad Which Could Not Turn into Something Worse", is a funny attack on both medicine and academia. The play set in a grotesque reality of a lunatic asylum. The characters of the play fight for their individuality in the up-side-down world. Doctors seem to be more mad than patients, reality mixes with dreams, erotic mixes with religion.
Witkacy (1885-1939) was a playwright, novelist, painter, photographer and philosopher. "He created a theater of the absurd twenty years before Beckett, Ionesco, and Genet. He himself was a living model of the avant-garde, advancing the frontiers of drama, fiction, aesthetics, philosophy and painting", Daniel Gerould the world’s most recognized “Witkacologist” wrote.
Such prominent actors as Franciszek Pieczka, Kazimierz Kaczor, and Elżbieta Kępińska
