The Barakah Theatre are bringing Stephen King’s cult psychological thriller Misery to the stage. The play will feature Monika Kufel and Michał Kościuk. Having been injured in a car accident, a popular romance series author is rescued by a woman living in a remote area. Her care and concern soon come to an end as she discovers a typescript of his newest novel. Nowicka transposes the plot from the 1980s to the present, i.e. to a 21st-century world marked by hate, harassment, stalkers… because nowadays everyone can have their own psycho-fan. Art is no longer just form and content; reception is comparably crucial. As they interpret subsequent works of art through emotional filters, the recipients sometimes push their imagination beyond the limits of absurd. There are many interpretations out there, but is each one of them truly safe? Can there even be a limit to interpretation at all, crossing which could lead to losing a sense of reality? Where does art end and life begin; where does life end and art begin? Is such a distinction even viable? And should we really take everything so seriously?
