Chekhov meets Fellini in this enchanting tragicomedy brimming with wit, charm and magic by one of Poland's most distinguished modern playwrights. Set in Poland circa 1890, Tadeusz Rózewicz's White Marriage is a surreal and erotic coming-of-age fairy tale that follows two young girls' maturation into womanhood. With the adult world swirling around sisters Bianca and Pauline, the two respond in wildly different ways to the strange discoveries they are making about the mysterious business of sex. This magic-filled "tragic farce" by one of Poland's greatest contemporary writers was a hit for the Odyssey 35 years ago. Learn More
