Springer – a monodrama – arose from an adaptation of a short story of the same title. The story, with a narrative centring around sport, gained its first literary prize in the short prose field at the Polish National Literary Competition in 1970.

 In the seventies Springer was perceived in Poland as a story of a unique individual – that of an ambitious sportsman, a heavyweight boxer, an Olympic champion. In the play, the sportsman reflects on his past life, a reflection prompted by a recent brain tumour diagnosis.

 The perspective on the play, in the context of modern Polish politics, has shifted over the past forty years.

Played in today’s reality, both in Poland and internationally, Springer is a monodrama about betrayal and loneliness in the face of a verociously consumerist world; a world in which emotions can become an unforgivable liability.

FinallySperzyna is a monodrama from the world of Becket and Ionesco. It is theatre of the Absurd from the likes of Witkackiewicz and it should be presented in this convention.

It is clear that this monodrama contains authentic elements from the playwright’s life along with precious insights into the lives of a few Olympic boxers, forgotten Polish sporting heroes.

Springer is a monodrama about betrayal and loneliness in the face of a ferociously consumerist world; a world in which emotions can become an unforgivable liability.

The writing brutally highlights the paradox of a simple, naive man, whose fierceness and strength underlay his success, yet who was indefensible to all that was morally vacuous around him.
