They’re the hitchhikers from hell. She’s a pregnant, glue-sniffing wacko. He’s a shell-suited motormouth with an intimidating leer. Claiming to be poor, Polish-speaking Romanians, Dzina and Parcha hijack a lift to Warsaw with a censorious, middle-class Pole whose reluctance swiftly turns into sobbing hysteria under the onslaught of their provocations. All is not as it first seems in this pungent debut play by Dorota Maslowska, the 24-year-old Polish literary phenomenon who already has two award-winning novels under her belt.
THEATRE REPLIKA is based on the idea that humanity is the most important element in contemporary art. They create deeply social and politically influenced projects, paying attention to what’s going on in Bulgaria and Europe.
