Scotsman Loves Dybbuk

Today's edition of the Scotsman features an extensive and in depth preview of TR Warszawa's Dybbuk. The article gives a fantastic historical and political context to the Holocaust centred play from Steve Cramer and also focuses on a recent interview with director and adaptor Krzystof Warlikowski.

"Krzysztof Warlikowski's new version of a classic - in which he fuses a contemporary story about a secular Jew haunted by a dead relative - alludes to the kind of historical ghosts seen in many political cultures, but it also speaks of the ghosts created by sexual repression"

There are still some tickets left for this show which plays from Saturday 9 until Monday 11 of August at the King's Theatre. The show is supported by The Binks Trust, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and the Adam Mickiewicz Trust.

On an altogether different matter, only 2 nights till launch!
