The play is a dark, grotesque and very funny fairy tale about a kingdom that is reduced to absurdity by a passive, unappealing heroine. The appalling Ivona manages to expose everyone’s most shameful secrets without doing a thing. Written in 1938 by renowned Polish playwright, author and philosopher Witold Gombrowicz, the play is a classic of the Polish repertoire.
