Summary/Abstract: Review of The Polish Club, a play directed by Paweł Miśkiewicz (Teatr Dramatyczny in Warsaw, premiere: 10 November 2010). Wichowska remarks that a director who has so far avoided political categories has created a play which, by examining the myth of Polish Romanticism and the Great Emigration, is reacting almost openly to the public mood of last year connected with the Smolensk catastrophe. The Polish Club therefore enters, in her opinion, the tradition of Romantic revisionism as a foundation of Polish identity and a template for Poles’ collective imagination.
