Our Performances


Partners In Crime

Premiere: May 26 at the Monopolis Stage in Łódź

Directed by Karol Wróblewski

Author: Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt


"Parners In Crime" is a play by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt with elements of comedy, crime fiction and a love novel. Full of surprising twists, wonderful, brilliant dialogue, a story about people on the way, where their life together is the way, which they have decided to enter together for several years. What is left of the first fascination, elation, desire, love and falling in love? How have the images of ourselves, living with each other, or perhaps next to each other changed? What is left of trust?
Together with actors Beata Kawka and Mirosław Zbrojewicz, director Karol Wróblewski takes viewers on the way to get to know themselves. Often what seems a cliché
is in fact a serious problem and only humor, laughter, sometimes tears, dancing, singing, memories or just a simple conversation can save the relationship of two loving people. There are no simple answers, only difficult questions.

The show can now be seen in the repertoire of Scena Relax in Warsaw.

The Laramie Project

Premiere: September 20, 2019 at the Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw


Directed by: Michał Gieleta


Author: Moises Kaufman


Hailed by the New York Times as one of the 25 most important plays of recent decades, Project Laramie belongs to the genre of theater of fact. All the words spoken in the play were actually spoken by residents of the provincial town of Laramie, Wyoming, and were recorded by members of the New York-based Tectonic Theater Project led by Moisés Kaufman. The text is based on the murder of a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, tortured and tied to a fence before his death in the wilderness, where he was found only eighteen hours later, and died after several days of fighting for his life. The members of Kaufman's theater group appeared in Laramie soon, writing down word for word and documenting step by step the course of the investigation and the attitude of this small community towards the death of Matthew Shephard.


In the performance, six actors play more than 60 characters, reflecting the attitudes of college officials, students, local clergy and media representatives, lower-ranking policemen, mothers of Matthew's schoolmates, neighbors and the victim's traumatized family. Due to its naturalism, minimalism, directness and lack of literary cut, The Laramie Project hits exactly where it should: conscience, emotions, thoughts and… the heart… Matthew Shepard is physically absent on stage. There is his story and emotions related to the story of a gay man living in a small, closed community. A story that you cannot stop thinking about after the performance.


Established in 2000, the play has had 2000 appearances in the United States and Canada in the last decade alone. The influence of art on the imagination of viewers of every age group and social class is proof of the power of socially engaged theater that goes beyond the framework of high art played only for a narrow, metropolitan audience.

Premiere: June 27 at the Monopolis Stage in Łódź


Directed by Dorota Landowska


Author: Anna Reynolds and Moira Buffini

"Jordan" is an account of a fellow inmate written by Anna Reynolds while serving her sentence and Moira Buffini, who was the first to play the role of Shirley Jones. It is a confession of a murderer, a young, defenseless girl, defenseless against her own memories. It can be said that it is a story about good and evil, about love and its lack, and about the fatal consequences of immature choices. To this day, this play inspires young actresses and directors all over the world, although the premiere took place in London in 1994. “My Jordan premiere took place 2 years later, on March 9, 1996 at the Powszechny Theater in Warsaw, directed by Agnieszka Glińska. I played this show for 15 years, always in full view of the audience, I received many awards for this role, and I really did a lot of good when I traveled with this monodrama around the world. I have never doubted the power of this text, its intervention power, which is why the idea was born to pass this role on. When I saw Zuzanna for the first time in the play "Jaskółeczka" in the Theatre in Leszno, I thought that she should take the lead in the relay race of generations and play Shirley Jones. We didn't know each other then. Then things moved quickly. Apparently that's how it was supposed to be ... "(Dorota Landowska)


"Shirley Jones was a real person. And that's the most important thing for me. I hope that with this performance I will prolong the memory of her and together with Dorota we will be able to show young people my age a different path, a different space. We want to say with this story that one should not judge others rashly, but also that it is always worth being close to another person and reaching out to him, even when he seemingly does not need it. " (Zuzanna Bernat)

Premiere: Soon


Directed by: Karol Jerzy Wróblewski


Author: Tadeusz Słobodzianek


A simple story of Cat's love for Swallow. Two worlds distant from each other, Cat-predator and Swallow - his potential victim, united by love. Two versions of the same story. Told from such different perspectives. The first is the story of the Father, who wanted to save his daughter Swallow from love, the first love, crazy-wonderful, but in his opinion unstable and capricious. The second is a story in defense of love, with all its colors, represented by the Wind who wants to take care of his beloved for the sake of affection. The struggle for love destroys the ossified world order and raises the questions: can a world exist without love and can love change the world?


The action takes place somewhere in the garden, by a tree, in the presence of a Parrot, Owl, Nightingale, Pigeon, Cow and Snake. Or maybe, somewhere in a tenement house, among ordinary neighbors, with their vices, prejudices, desires and professions. The performance teaches tolerance, empathy, sensitivity to the other, often stranger. It shows the power of love that connects people regardless of age, race, origin or social status.


A simple story, about difficult things, for children and teenagers from 7 to 107 years old, daringly played by wonderful actors.

Premiere: Soon


Author: Eric Bogosian


Eric Bogosian's play tells the story of one night in the life of a group of twenty-year-olds living in the New Jersey suburbs and their meeting with an old high school friend who is now a pop star. For them, a friend's visit becomes an impulse to reflect on their own lives. Although some see the ideal of comfort in a quiet, suburban existence, others find themselves suffocated in such a world, and while wandering at night, after drinking some alcohol, they begin to see the futility of their existence. The play is set over one night and the morning that follows.


SubUrbia was first presented on Broadway on April 27, 1994 and was rated in the New York press as one of the season's best plays. In 1996, it got a film adaptation directed by Richard Linklater. This is a great picture of a youth wasting time due to lack of motivation and self-confidence, and whose only worries are sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. An important aspect of the performance is raising the problem of racism and hate speech. The story of nonconformist American teenagers confronted with the attitude of hardworking Pakistani immigrants who achieve success is extremely interesting, but also very instructive.

This performance is dedicated to the young actors.
