Editor's review

The small Witkacy theatre is one of the most cherished theatres in Poland. It was founded in 1984 in tribute to a Zakopane legend, Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz (1885-1939) a multitalented artist who was known as 'Witkacy' to his friends. Several of Witkacy's witty, spirited plays still sound fresh today, and they are all regularly performed at this theatre. The golden age of the theatre was in the 80's but it's still a vibrant spot today. Compensation to non-Polish speakers can be found in the cafe, which is a popular hangout for young artists. If the theatre is staging a foray into contemporary drama you may not be left out though as language is often the least important aspect these days.

Having a chance to learn about Witkacy while playing a small role in The Madman and the Nun at the Ambassador Theater in Washington, DC last year was a real treat. I would love to visit the Witkacy Theatre at a future date and have an opportunity to perform in another of his plays.

You have a typo in your comment on Witkacy's death. He did not die in 1917, he committed suicide in 1939...
