Our Class

Our Class

based on the play by Tadeusz Słobodzianek
Spectacle of the Art of Dialogue Foundation
Directed by: Ondrej Spišák
The heroes of Our Class are schoolchildren in a small town similar to Jedwabne or Radziłów. The play begins with a scene in which the children, Poles and Jews, tell what they want to be when they grow up. We then follow their fates – amidst weddings, births, and deaths – through the pre-war years, both periods of occupation, the People’s Republic of Poland, and up to the present day. Inspired by the crimes of Jedwabne, Our Class presents the question of the source of anti-Semitism and the right to moral judgement of the participants in those events. It also shows that the over the space of years, the bill for injury was written by the hands of Poles and Jews alike.
Słobodzianek’s drama had its premiere at the National Theatre in London in September of 2009. It was translated by Ryan Craig, and directed by Bijan Sheibani. This was the first play by a Polish playwright to be produced on the stage of the English National Theatre.
Ondrej Spišák, who was famous in Poland in the 1990s for a series of productions in Polish puppet theatres, and for his hit stage adaptation of Robinson Crusoe, in his introduction for the play writes, “I would like for Our Class to help build understanding of events like those in Jedwabne. I am under the impression that in Poland, anyone who talks about or brings up the crimes committed against Jews is treated as an enemy. But this is a political discussion, radicalised by various factors. Our Class does not attempt to teach; it is a kind of storytelling that is intended to raise questions. It does not attempt to judge anyone, but rather to show the complexity of the events described. Our Class, alluding to the events in Eastern Poland, is at the same time a universal story, understood everywhere where deep ethnic conflicts appear, and private life is forced to supplant grand policies. It is important to us that this is a story about people that one might meet on the street, and with whom the viewer will identify. This story is to be a warning, but it also must show how incredibly difficult the situations of the main characters are. We must do everything in our power to ensure that the events described in Our Class never occur again in our civilisation.”
The cast includes Magdalena Czerwińska, Izabela Dąbrowska, Mariusz Drężek, Monika Fronczek, Anna Gryszkówna, Dorota Landowska, Leszek Lichota, Damian Łukawski, Robert T. Majewski, Paweł Pabisiak, Przemysław Sadowski, Marcin Sztabiński and Karol Wróblewski. The scenography is by František Liptak, the costumes by Jan Kozikowski, and the choreography was created by Anna Iberszer.
