Wiktor Rubin returns to the Inferno competition of the Boska Komedia / Divine Comedy (having received the prize for directing the play Everyone Gets What They Believe In at the Powszechny Theatre in Warsaw in 2016) to propose a production based on a true story with the authentic character of Eugeniusz Steinbart, plucked straight from the local history of Łódź, at its heart. The press described Eugeniusz as “a woman who in every way looked like a man”. Using a relative’s documents, he married in a church and raised a child with his wife. He was imprisoned for “attestation of falsehood”. The play reenacts his trial. Although the character’s gender holds immeasurable significance for them, this is something we tend to forget. This is largely due to the director, the playwright Jolanta Janiczak, and above all, Edmund Krempiński, a transgender actor who has infuses the play with his highly intimate experiences. As a result, Łódź received a production whose social impact overshadows all other aspects. It is a voice that has the potential to penetrate the wall of indifference. The first narrative of transition in Polish mainstream theatre that erects no barriers before a wide audience.
