“Barbara Wysocka’s spectacle is a representation of a modern-day, realistic politics, created by uncompromising politicians hungry for power, but unprepared for the responsibility that comes along with it. It also shows us this from society’s point of view, which serves as a hostage of the political revolution and is easily manipulated with the help of crafted arguments and distributed public finances. It is a political vision where the basic source of fuel is the corpse of a ruler, above which the words Freedom, Honour and Homeland are uttered so often until finally they turn into a haunting political cliche.”

This production received the Golden Yorick for the best Polish production of Shakespearean play in 2015/16 theatre season at the Gdansk Festival.
