LOVE IN SAYBROOK, by playing with various types of theater, tells the complex truth about human feelings. In a tale about the relationship problems of three married couples, Woody Allen brilliantly mixes conventions such as comedy, absurd grotesque and crime thriller, to make theatrical fiction express a little truth about our longings and failures.
A married couple, she – a psychologist, he – an orthodontist (Sonia Bohosiewicz and Marcin Perchuć), are celebrating their seventh wedding anniversary in their charming home in the pretty town of Old Saybrook. Celebrating with them are the psychologist’s sister – owner of a lingerie shop, and her husband – a plastic surgeon (Joanna Liszowska and Wiktor Zborowski). The sudden appearance of the former house-owner – an accountant-poet (Szymon Bobrowski) and his timid wife (Barbara Kurdej-Szatan/Anna Cieślak) reveals a shocking mystery in a secret chamber.
Add to this a mysterious man (Andrzej Poniedzielski), razor-sharp wit, an avalanche of naughty jokes and musical inserts of love songs (such as “All you need is love” by The Beatles) – and you will get this show.
The motto of the Master:
There are millions of books written by the most brilliant minds, none of which can answer the great questions of life. Maybe the only answer is love.
