Ladies, have we not all dreamed of having our very own fishmonger stripped bare, hosed down and scrubbed by our older sisters before he is presented to us in a glittery blue suit? And there's even a post-nude song to commemorate the moment.
Poland's answer to Angelina Jolie, Magdalena Cielecka strips down not once, but twice in these two heavy duty theatre pieces. She answers the male audience members' prayers in both the Polish spectaculars hitting the International Festival. All completely intrinsic to the plot you understand.
