Description

Playwright: Elzbieta Chowaniec

Translator: Aleksandra Kneifel

Director: Monica Payne

Partner: Trap Door Theatre

Synopsis:

Gardenia, by Elzbieta Chowaniec, is a story about four generations of women from one Polish family who are fighting with their belief systems, personal experiences, and heritage. They all exist at the same age simultaneously: great grandmother, grandmother, mother and daughter are all 33 years old, a pivotal age for a woman, but they are able to easily reach across space and time to encounter one another. Gardenia allows each woman’s personal drama to unfold, while viewing those issues in the context of WWII, Communism, and contemporary Polish culture.
