kingdom condo, a ''comedy with corpses,'' is a depraved subversion of all these practical mental dramas of jealousy, adultery, homicide and suicide that ask to be taken heavily. Witkacy's send-up assumes the shape of a ghost tale jam-packed with surprises, during which a complete relatives of 4 is gleefully dispatched to the opposite global. while it was once first played in 1923 in Torun, Country House used to be judged fallacious for most people since it derided ethical, social and dramatic conference. 3 years later, as directed by means of the playwright himself in Lwów, the drama proved an unforeseen luck with audiences (although it purely ran for 4 nights) and ever on account that has been between Witkacy's most often played works.
Today we will have fun with Country House not just as a scientific demolition of level realism, but additionally as an frightened probing of the elusive limitations among lifestyles and dying, exposing the ''dark places'' of the human psyche that make us snicker nervously.
