The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center welcomes one of Poland’s most beloved and prolific playwrights, Michał Walczak, for an evening of performance and discussion. Walczak’s 2001 play The Sandbox, produced at eleven theatres and translated into six languages, thrust him onto the international scene. Since then, his oeuvre has grown to include over 20 plays, including 2004’s The First Time (translated into nine languages) and, more recently, three plays for children. New York audiences were treated to Walczak’s rough-and-tumble take on contemporary gender relations as part of Made in Poland: A Festival of New Polish Plays (59E59 Theaters, 2008). The playwright will join us for a special evening focused on his past, current, and future projects.

Kimberly Faith Hickman will direct selections of his work, starring Lanna Joffrey and Jens Rasmussen.
