Florian Zeller’s “The Lie”!

Joanna Liszowska plays one of the main roles in Florian Zeller’s thriller comedy “The Lie” directed by Wojciech Malajkat. The premiere of the performance prepared by the Theater Company took place on 8, 9 and 10 September in Nowy Sącz!

“The Lie” is the amazing, penetrating and at the same time incredibly funny study of a lie. Florian Zeller, a French playwright, who has already accustomed his audience to fast rides, moves with the grace of a balerina and the precision of a surgeon through the meanders and recesses of the human mind. Two married couples, two couples of friends, two couples of lovers, and there are still only four of them, how is this possible? The author knows a lot about male-female relationships. Someone might say, and who does not know? But he skillfully and provocatively translated it into words … Words that cut. Like a razor.

He managed to metaphorically combine Bergman‘s “Scenes from a Marriage” with comedies of Woody Allen. Of course, it‘s not just about word play, but also a rational, philosophical subtext.

Alongside Joanna Liszowska, the cast includes: Iza Kuna, Wojciech Malajkat, Mikołaj Roznerski, Leszek Czarnota and Piotr Szwedes, who is also the producer of the show.

The performance can be seen in different theatres in Poland.


The 6th Floor Theater: LOVE IN SAYBROOK

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.
