Maria Wojtyszko

Sam, or preparation for family life

Sam means alone in Polish. Maria Wojtyszko’s play offers the fresh perspective of contemporary Polish theatre, thematizing with subtle sensibility and humor the problems and self-searching of an adolescent whose parents are going through a difficult divorce. The grotesque family history asks gut-wrenching questions about the possible new role of religion in modern society and the chances of survival of the traditional family model.
