A Crooked Tale

A journey to hell and back

Premiere

Wednesday, March 16, 20:30, Tojo Bern

Plot

After a violent bipolar attack, Sara Gemini is sent to a psychiatric clinic. Although the clinic is supposed to be a safe place, Sara soon learns it is not – unless she makes it safe for her own sake. She learns to live with her condition, maintain respect for herself and to balance between shame, guilt and grief. The play also tells how her family reacts to Sara’s hospitalisation – how the “healthy” see the “sick”, and what it ultimately means to be a compassionate person.

The play touches on topics that are as explosive as they are important: How do we deal with illness? How does society view mental problems? From the point of view of a bipolar person, Dorota K. Solarska tells a sensitive story that is intended to touch the audience and make them think. The artist’s first full-length play is a delicate, devastating, but also hopeful story about humanity, illness and our society.
