Radio plays produced by Teatr Polskiego Radia (competition)

1.Stanisław Wyspiański: “Warszawianka”

Premiere: 1 March 2018
Adaptation and direction: Wawrzyniec Kostrzewski
Music: Mateusz Wachowiak
Production: Andrzej Brzoska

Actors: Maciej Babicz, Przemysław Bluszcz, Karolina Charkiewicz, Adam Ferency, Michał Klawiter, Dominika Kluźniak, Anna Lemieszek, Agata Różycka, Olga Sarzyńska, Dawid Ściupidro, Hanna Skarga and Marcin Stępniak

Duration: 44 minutes

Its quest for new texts and authors aside, Teatr Polskiego Radia constantly resorts to the classics. “Warszawianka” is a radio play based on a drama by one of the most important Polish playwrights, directed by one of the most important directors of the young generation. The director did not oppose the tradition of staging Wyspiański’s pieces. He sought to distil from the text not only the drama of the represented situation but also the psychological motivation behind characters’ actions, the tragedy of the historical situation, and the critical political connotations pointed to by the author. This resulted in a radio play that is raw and real. The director reads the poet’s words with utmost attention.

2.Franciszek Bohomolec: “Małżeństwo z kalendarza”

Premiere: 2 April 2017
Adaptation, direction and music production: Jarosław Tumidajski
Acoustic production: Andrzej Brzoska

Actors: Jerzy Radziwiłowicz, Danuta Stenka, Monika Pikuła, Katarzyna Dąbrowska, Piotr Polak, Rafał Zawierucha, Grzegorz Kwiecień, Jakub Kamieński and Sławomir Orzechowski

Duration: 45 minutes

A completely original take on the old piece. Now probably known only to the researchers of the 18th-century literature, Bohomolec’s comedy was a trampoline Jarosław Tumidajski uses to explore the modern time. He humorously shows how much today’s ‘hipster community’ takes after the ways of the so-called elites of the society in the past. This is a smart comedy with carefully selected actors.

3.Weronika Murek: “Uprawa roślin południowych metodą Miczurina”

Premiere: 12 March 2017
Direction: Julia Mark
Acoustic production: Tomasz Perkowski
Music production: Mira Mańka

Actors: Lech Łotocki, Andrzej Mastalerz, Aleksandra Konieczna, Anna Gorajska, Mateusz Łasowski, Eliza Borowska, Ewelina Żak, Ewa Dałkowska, Adam Ferency, Magdalena Karel, Zofia Kołodziejczyk and Michał Rosiński

Duration: 42 minutes

The author lent her texts and themes from her short story collection, which a few years ago attracted a lot of attention, and the young director has turned the clumsy literature into a script that is both coherent and stylistically grotesque. The heroine is a girl who has survived… her own death. Or maybe it is just the mysterious narrator of that world that makes us stand above the common-sense view of various phenomena and look beneath the outer layer of reality? In that case, there might be no death at all. Both the author and the director take us on a trip to a land of poetic thinking, the world of folk magic and fantastic imagination that might be cruel at times.

4.Michał Zdunik: “Gate 0”

Premiere: 1 June 2017
Direction and music: Michał Zdunik
Acoustic production: Maciej Kubera

Actors: Katarzyna Dąbrowska, Marta Kurzak, Łukasz Borkowski, Wiktor Loga-Skarczewski and Jerzy Radziwiłowicz

Duration: 46 minutes

A radio debut of the young director who is a graduate of the Academy of Dramatic Art and an author of scripts executed at Polish Radio. “Gate 0” is a story of an apparently ordinary airplane journey that actually takes place at a strange airport. The voices of those who have been long gone return, as do recollections. Then resound the disquieting, vague messages from the air traffic control. What kind of journey is this? What is its direction? How about the destination? Is it a dream or not; is it a reality or some foggy, unreal vistas?

5.Tamara Antonijević: “Pewnego dnia wszystko to zmieści się w mniejszej torebce” (translation: Aleksandra Jakubczak)

Premiere: 19 March 2017
Co-production: The Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute
Direction: Małgorzata Wdowik
Acoustic production: Andrzej Brzoska
Sound composition: Ole Hübner

Actor: Katarzyna Wajda

A radio play recorded with the bi-natural method.

Duration: 37 minutes

“Pewnego dnia wszystko to zmieści się w mniejszej torebce” is a radio play produced in collaboration with the Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute and based on a poetic piece by the Serbian author Tamara Antonijević. The musical part was composed by the acclaimed young composer Ole Hübner, and the whole thing directed by Małgorzata Wdowik.

It is a story about today’s world dominated by technology. It might be that anything we bring into the network, each picture, sound, thought and dream, will circulate in some ‘clouds’ until the end of the world. And those things will speak of us, in a good or bad way. The radio play does not follow a classical plot; it is more of a series of poetic images triggered by sounds – human voices, the sounds of a speech synthesizer (which, one day, may replace our voice in the media), the records of natural sounds and some disconcerting music. The feel of suggestive out-of-ordinariness is heightened by the special recording technique used by the director of audiography – the bi-natural technique. For this reason, the audience needs to use headphones to properly enjoy the sound dimension of the play.

TV plays (competition)

1.”Porwać się na życie”

This is a lyrical comedy kept in the convention of “Czech” humor. The absurd story of great love. Fifty-year-old hero, a lifeless loser and unlucky, decides once in a lifetime to dare and make a heroic act. He abducts his work colleague (in which he is in love from childhood) to free her from her primitive husband and start a new life with her.

When he takes her to his aunt’s empty house, he realizes what he has actually done. And then the abducted friend encourages him and maintains in the conviction that his act was right and deeply human. It does not change the fact, however, that she will face both her husband and her husband.

Art won the competition of the Association of Authors ZAiKS and WFDiF for a dramatic piece for TEATROTEKA.

2.”Cicha noc”

This is not the first play they wrote under the pseudonym of my sister – Monika Muskała (translator) and Gabriela Muskała (actress). Similarly to the previous dramas of this company, we have in the center of interest a multigenerational Polish family with mother in the main role and memory and remembering in the background.

The action of art takes place the day before and on Christmas Eve. And although all the heroes expect the upcoming Christmas, they know that, like every year, their family meeting will trigger a series of unwanted, often painful memories related to the place of origin of the family, with the tragedy that the family met over the years from the Ukrainians.

A portrait of four women from one Cracow family. The story of a mother, daughter, granddaughter and granddaughter, who, in addition to blood ties, have something else in common – alcohol addiction. The subject of generations of addictions handed down in the relay served the author to create a picture of the society from the 1930s to the present day. It is not only about the social scourge of alcoholism. It is cruel in its realism to deny the romantic vision of a woman as a goddess of home and guardian of national values.

In the production of Wojciech Urbański, the author, Elżbieta Chowaniec, appears as one of the characters in the drama.

Who are the “weak” titles of Magdalena Drab’s art? They are people, many around us. Banal and tormented by their own banality, unable to face gray everyday life.

Falling, or maybe just running away into depression. Those who want love and a better life are infected with death, although the fear of it completely paralyzes them. The main character of the play is a woman who, after the birth of her child, falls into depression. This depression isolates her from family and other people. Is, however, surely motherhood becomes the cause of her illness? Or maybe she had already shown the weakness of being sensitive in a world where the atrophy of feelings and the primitivism of behavior are considered to be strength?

Magdalena Drab’s art won in the prestigious Gdynia Drama Prize competition in 2017.

5.”Spalenie Joanny”

The subject of the play, which was awarded in the competition of the ZAiKS and WFDiF Authors’ Association, are irregularities and frauds related to the reprivatization of Warsaw land and tenement houses. Art, written before the subject hit the headlines and started the process, is not a realistic drama, though it shows the brutal methods of cheaters and the wrongs of the removed tenants.

The play is written in the poetics of romantic drama, and the hot topic of the “wild” reprivatization of land and real estate is included in the form of a literary parable with elements of the grotesque. The recurring theme of “reversing history” and “repairing wrongs” appears in the performance, as a universal theme, going far beyond the issue of reprivatization.

7. “Proch”

Directed by: Jakub Radej

“Proch” is a study of the way a human body has to pass from the moment of death to the funeral. The next stages of this path (dissection, morgue, cemetery) are juxtaposed in Jakub Radeja’s film with bureaucratic book-keeping, which also becomes the property of the deceased or deceased. Cool registration of the fate of these material remnants of man is an open form in which one can enter both the question about the meaning of existence and the reflection on the loneliness of people who nobody says goodbye …
