Summary/Abstract: Jakub Papuczys reviews three plays from the Wielkopolska: Revolutions project, curated by Agata Siwiak. Better Not Go There: Changes (Szamocin, premiere: 6.07.2014), directed by Michał Borczuch, is variations on the theme of last year's play, created in cooperation with children from the orphanage in Szamocin and children and young people affiliated with the Stacja Szamocin theater. A Rozdrażew Cosmology (Rozdrażew, premiere: 12.09.2014) by Wojtek Ziemilski joins the private stories of the play's participants – members of the Rozdrażew Branch of the Polish Astronomy Lovers' Association and the Kasjopea Astronomy Club with a scientific narrative about outer space. The Children of Jarocin Sing Retrojutro (Jarocin, premiere: 13.09.2014), in turn, is a project by Weronika Szczawińska and the Children of Jarocin ensemble, based on the legend of a famous festival, reconstructing the history of Retrojutro group, while leaving open-ended questions about the reliability of the facts and documents the play provides.
