The power of Teatr Rozmaitości lays in it's excellent actors and stage designers. And Urbański did not waste this great potential. In goose-throat narrow space of theatre's rehearsal room Magdalena Maciejewska with only a few utensils, projector and light has created the country train station, Japanese restaurant, a meadow and a modern studio. There's not an inch of space, that haven't been used. All the elements infiltrate, accent the atmosphere, authenticate the story.
And story reveals at hand of the audience almost pulled into the dramatic events, which makes two hours of the performance to pass painlessly, at least. The narrow stage makes an uneasy task for actors as it forces very intimate relation with audience and a task is accepted with a courage. The duet Jennifer (Aleksandra Konieczna) and Andrew (Andrzej Chyra) is played marvelously.
