15 December | 20.00 | New Stage
In a small town lives a prayerful widow with five daughters, old mother and two maids. This story is not a fairy tale, though.

But there is just one knight on a white horse in the neighborhood…
3 January | 20.00 | Third Stage
In order to become a real Player, you need more than the endless hours with joystick in your hand. You have to devote something more than just time and money. You have to give your soul to the game… By meeting a spontaneous, music-loving businessman, an ex-gambler who lost everything in casinos, and a rugby player who discovered his passion for playing in a motorcycle accident, you will find out that everything of this is true.
YOU’LL BE PLEASED, MADAM; OR THE VERY LAST WEDDING IN KAMYK VILLAGE
12 January | 18.00 | Big Stage
Behold a village where the air has got still and stale. Behold a village where silence reigns supreme: no one can hear a fly buzz, the wind rustle in the rye or an upcoming cart. Behold a village with no children, where cows stopped having calves years ago and where hens lay no eggs. The pattern of birth and death has stopped. No one starts new families here. Half of the houses are empty and only the strongest have remained. None of the village dwellers is perfectly normal.
Will Zunia and Siutek’s much-feted wedding disrupt the reign of silence, rejuvenate the local community and terminate the dead season with the traditional “and they lived happily ever after”? Or perhaps the encroaching apocalypse cannot be prevented? One thing is sure: an uninvited wedding guest, evil, is knocking at the door.
13 January | 19.30 | New Stage
VERSUS by Rodrigo Garcia is a powerful and moving play about a family falling apart, joined together and at the same time divided by a great mystery from the past. It is about people who operate in a complicated world of guilt and harm, intimacy and hatred. It is also a poetic tale of artistic truth and emotions that invariably accompany the assumption of ever new roles. There is no whitewashing. There is no compromise. There is no censorship.
18 January | 20.00 | Third Stage
A monodrama in which actress Edyta Lukaszewska inquires about freedom: where to seek it and whether it exists. In her opinion, “Totalitarianism is a state of mind filled with the fear of a nonexistent threat. I am looking for answers about what freedom is and how it matters to me. My character seems to know more about it”. The text was written by András Visky, a Hungarian poet, essayist and playwright born in 1957 in Târgu Mureş, Romania. His plays have been staged internationally, including in France, Italy, Poland and Romania.
22 January | 19.30 | New Stage
A theatrical story about love in the world of pop culture. A tale which became a perfect subject for a reality show. Nora, a singer, and her husband-manager agree for video cameras, microphones, tabloids and one slightly mentally unstable fan to enter their house. Are they aware of the consequences?
27 January | 19.30 | New Stage
There were no curtains hung in the Scandinavian homes in order to show that their residents, especially women, had nothing to hide; that they lived honestly and devoutly. But what about the residents of contemporary homes, hiding behind the heavily curtained windows? Are the curtains hiding only their sins and minor misdeeds? Or are they hiding dreams as well, allowing the residents to break the bonds of propriety, to, if only temporarily, forget about social expectations? The Austrian playwright Werner Schwab mercilessly opens these curtains. He allows us to look into the deeply hidden desires of his presidents, the pillars of the middle class community, who, in spite of being burdened with everyday concerns, are still dreaming of love. And only behind the curtains they can safely fantasise.
