Summary/Abstract: Tomasz Kowalski reviews Cezary Tomaszewski's play The Queen of Madagascar's Soldier (Bogusławski Theater in Kalisz, premiere: 12.12.2015), beginning by telling the story of how the work was created, and how it continues to function. The author sums up the plot in order to show how it disintegrates in the performance through fragmentation and the added subplots. Kowalski describes various scenes in order to show how the text exposes the theatricality of the actors' performances. He also lauds the acting and the director for their absurdist humor and the remarkable energy of the production.
