“I love these characters. He's gay, she's Jewish. They're outcasts in a society that almost got rid of the likes of them. Almost. But they're both nobodies. He's barely tolerated. She's looking for truth, but she can only plead for help, no one supports her. Eventually, they both explode. Their heads explode. She's returning to this house like a zombie. Hopeless and degraded. He explodes on the stage. If you're human, your head has to explode in a culture of lies, where a murderer is a good neighbor, and no one wants to know, no one cares.” (Przemysław Wojcieszek)
