Based on a play by two Scottish authors, David Greig and Gordon McIntyre, Iwona Jera’s play, produced by the Bagatela Theatre, tells a sensational, comedic story about a group of friends – artists who gather just after sunset in Krakow’s Planty Park. None of them are able to function in “normal” society, and they join forces to face everyday problems. All of the characters struggle with loneliness and accepting reality. At a certain point, they create an immersive alternate universe by telling the story of Bob and Helen, channelling their emotional needs into the story. The woman from the tale is a successful lawyer who meets a petty gangster from the local mafia. Longing for love, she sets off on a wild journey into the night with him. Starting a passionate affair, Helen and Bob have to face romantic dilemmas as well as criminal ones.

Jera’s play brings the audience into a familiar realm, taking them on a comical odyssey across a landscape of unexpected passions, madness and irrational impulses of the heart. A series of episodes, interwoven with ironic, unsentimental songs, make up this bittersweet tale of loneliness and people who are desperate not to spend the night alone.
