The Martin E. Segal Theatre and The Pioneer Theater
New York, NY

Przemyslaw Wojcieszek is one of Poland's best emerging playwrights, screenwriters, and directors. Starting his career as a successful film director, Wojcieszek quickly became a leading representative of Polish independent cinema. His Louder Than Bombs was honored at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2002, and for Down the Colorful Hill Wojcieszek was named Best Director at The Polish Film Festival in Gdynia 2004. Though he won the most important awards in Poland and his films were widely presented abroad, in 2004 he turned to theatre, staging mostly his own scripts and exploring themes of tolerance, personal identity, and being Polish. Made in Poland marked Wojcieszek's debut both as playwright and as theatrical director at the Modjeska Theatre in Legnica. An absolute hit with audiences and critics alike, the play was regarded as the best in Poland in the 2004/2005 season by theatrical critics.


The discussion with Przemyslaw Wojcieszek will be moderated and the readings will be directed by Linda Chapman, Associate Artistic Director at the New York Theatre Workshop.


"It has been a long time since we have seen a Polish film that is so formally fresh, yet so mature in the manner in which it examines the world" - Tomasz Tiuryn, Gazeta Wyborcza
