Summary/Abstract: A review ofkomuny//warszawa’s Bookes (premiere: 29-30 January 2011). Discussing the subjects of the plays that preceded Bookes, the author shows that the name change from Komuna Otwock to komuna//warszawa reflects the evolution that has taken place in the group over the last few years: “a belief in the possibility and significance of a radical and sudden transformation has given way to a positivistic strategy of tiny steps.” She then describes the three parts of the Bookes as reflections of this change. The protagonists of the various parts present various standpoints in life; the finale is in praise of the golden mean – hard, systematic work, which might become the road to emancipation.
