The thesis play by the graduating students of the fourth year of the vocal-acting specialization of the Acting Department of Kraków Academy of Theatre Arts is a rather faithful adaptation of Dorota Masłowska’s novel of the same title. Its action takes place in a fictional United States, a country of seemingly great opportunities: a fast-paced, modern lifestyle but also the collapse of all political, religious and spiritual values. As usual with Masłowska, language plays a key role: the piece is full of English-language word-play and above all an irony and wit that skewers the absurdities of postmodern daily life. Rafał Dziwisz, directing the six young performers, adheres closely to this approach, bringing forth the melodic narrative rhythm of the original book. The performers are accompanied by a live band and there’s an element of vaudeville to the way they tell their stories of people lost in the big city, longing for intimacy and trying to find themselves—all conveyed primarily through grotesque anecdotes and language games.
