Tango
combines elements of farce, absurdist theatre, slapstick comedy and political discourse, as it tells the story of Arthur, a son who wants to bring order to his free-spirited bohemian family. Written in 1968 during the Soviet takeover of Poland, the play examines a type of freedom in which “anything goes,” and the ensuing backlash as youthful idealism turns into a grab for power, opening the door to barbarians.
