Date of premiere 8 december 2016

The Polish premiere of the latest play by distinguished German author Marius von Mayenburg was prepared exclusively for the opening of the Divine Comedy International Theatre Festival, as a coproduction with the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Kraków. This version, staged by acclaimed director Grzegorz Wiśniewski, is a kind of satire on modern middle class people convinced of their uniqueness as artists. The events revolve around a bourgeois family—a confused doctor and his wife who works as an assistant to an extravagant artist, but is also obsessed with perfection. Their teenage son is going through a rough and rebellious puberty. The relatively stable family situation changes drastically when they decide to hire a new maid, Jessica, who, like Gombrowicz's Ivona, turns their world upside down. She becomes a vehicle for identity transformation for each of the characters, while also revealing their character defects, weaknesses, and fears.
