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

The idea of the play had intrigued me: a biography of the original bad boy of French literature. However, the play turned out to be really, really badly written. The best within this disaster could have been the recitation of Villon's poetry. But the actor raced through those lines and made them unintelligible.

About the Ticket Supplier: Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival
Padua Playwrights continues a writing, performance, and teaching tradition that began Off Off Broadway and was sustained and refined at the Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival. The Festival prospered on the right balance between teaching a serious writing workshop and the production of a professional festival of new work.Moving indoors, Padua has traded the raw immediacy of site-specific outdoor performances for the focus and finesse of an indoor theater space. Continued, however, is Padua’s exploration of the spoken word and its myriad connections to the possibility of real meaning.
