Summary/Abstract: The article attempts an analysis of an early play by Władysław Sebyła, preserved in the Adam Mickiewicz Museum of Literature in Warsaw. In Bunt ludzi. Strzępy niescenicznego dramatu. 7 wizji (The People’s Revolt. Scraps of a Non-stage Drama. 7 Visions), written in verse, it is possible to find both traces of Modernist poetics as well as theinfluences of expressionist drama and contemporary Theater Studies. The author analyzes the titular formula of a “non-stage drama”, contemplates the structure of the plot, the characters, the setting, as well as the stage project written into the text of the play. Moreover, she is interested in the influence of Tadeusz Miciński’s works on Sebyła (one of the chief Modernist poets, whose dramas were rediscovered during the interwar period), as well as the allusions to allegorical drama and psychomachia, present in Sebyła’s drama. In turn, the analysis leads to the central question of whether the drama, which relies on unreliable, often contradictory stories, based on the perception of emotions and events by different subjects, could be stagedin the theaters of that time.
