Reading Gombrowicz. Banquet

The Jan Kochanowski Public Theater in Radom invites you to another encounter with the work of Witold Gombrowicz. This time, actors from the Radom theater will present the story entitled “Bankiet” (Banquet). It is a grotesque and humorous portrayal of a “court” that wants to hide the flaws of its ruler. The meeting will take place on Monday, November 13, 2023, at the Kotłownia Stage. It will start at 6 PM. To celebrate the wedding of King Gnul and Princess Renata Adelaide from a wealthy kingdom, a splendid banquet will be held, with the invitation extended only to the noblest individuals in the kingdom. But will it be just an ordinary and boring reception? We assure you that it won’t be! Join us for a feast full of grotesque and irony, during which we will reflect on what form is and whether one can escape it – assures Anna Pietruszka from the Radom theater. The story will be presented by actors: Katarzyna Dorosińska, Agnieszka Grębosz, Joanna Jędrejek, Milena Jóźwiak, Joanna Zagórska, and Cezary Domagała. Directed by Agnieszka Pilaszewska.
