THE TRAP by Tadeusz Rózewicz

US Premiere

Thursday, May 28, 2015 - Sunday, June 21, 2015

XX Bldg management, 814 20th Street NW, Washington DC

Tickets: $20 - $40

Inspired by life and work of Franz Kafka, The Trap is a collage of events, images and sounds that deeply affected the writer. Fears and nightmares, Kafka's real-life companions, found their way into many of his short stories and novels, which continue to fascinate and baffle readers all over the world. The play, one of Tadeusz Rózewicz's last, is not only his poetic farewell to Kafka and a psychological portrait of a writer, but also Rózewicz's unique vision of Kafka's destiny. To realize the vision, the avant-garde playwright alters traditional conventions of time and space and traps Kafka in the ultimate nightmare of the 20th century - the Holocaust.

Are you ready to witness cruel destiny in the making? Are you ready to step into a writer's mind and experience his deepest fears and desires? Come and see The Trap and reflect on fragility of life and artistic creation. Join the Ambassador Theater's team in discovering the world of an artist and experience the unique 'open theatre' of Tadeusz Rózewicz.
