Summary/Abstract: A review of Anna Augustynowicz’s latest play at the Współczesny Theater in Szczecin: A Small Family Business, based on the Alan Ayckbourn comedy, translated by Małgorzata Semil (premiere: 11 II 2012). In the reviewer’s opinion, the play finds the director analyzing the disintegration of family ties and the degradation of moral values under the capitalist system, treating the titular family business as a model for the contemporary society.
