Join us for a celebration of the latest Segal Center publication with three works for the theatre by Dorota Masłowska. Her two plays A Couple of Poor Polish Speaking Romanians and No Matter How Hard We Try both received early readings at the Segal Center—and they continue to be performed in international theatres venues like the Schaubühne Berlin as well as in Polish theaters. Masłowska also wrote How I became a Witch, a poem for children, which has been sucessfully adapted for the stage. Her 2018 rap poem Other People has been translated into a multi-media performance by Grzegorz Jarzyna at TR Warszawa and is currently being adapted for a motion picture—scheduled for an opening in late autumn 2020.

Dorota Masłowska, born 1983, is a renowned, multi-award winning Polish writer, playwright and journalist. Since her debut novel in 2003 with Snow White and Russian Red, (published in the USA by Grove Atlantic) she is regarded both as the most important young writer as well as the literary enfant terrible in Poland. The novel has been translated into dozen languages and has been adapted into a movie. Her second novel, Honey I killed the Cats (2012), was published in an English translation by Benjamin Paloff in 2019 by Deep Vellum Publishers, Dallas, Texas.

Kate Loewalk is the founding producer of The Play Company (PlayCo), New York.
