Summary/Abstract: Natalia Brajner reviews a play by Cezary Tomaszewski, The Wedding, Based on the Wedding, performed at Opole's Jan Kochanowski Theater (premiere: 16.04.2015). According to the author, Tomaszewski's performance strikes up a discussion with Stanisław Wyspiański's text and its canonical, symbolic interpretation, and not, as the creators suggest, a liberation from the traditional reading. It is also an attempt to construct an up-to-date, tragicomic appraisal of the state of Polish society.
