MEDIA ON THE PLAY

Two decades of stage existance it’s a real record for a play. Oddly enough most costumes still are in Teatr Ślaski since the opening night, but new are… slippers and hats. One had to renovate stage design and that produced funny complications because plain was still fresh in the day of presentation. Especially tiresome was walking on stage, because shoes stuck to it. And while actors ripped off their shoes from board one can her loud splays, "the crocodile walk".
