“The Teacher” (“Belfer”), a play directed by Michał Kwieciński, with Wojciech Pszoniak in the lead role – took place on Thursday, 19 April, at our school.
“The Teacher”, a play written by Jean Pierre Dopagne, a Belgian playwright, is a story about a teacher of literature at a school for so called troubled youth.
His work, so far performed with a sense of mission, gradually changes into a restless game, when, every day, he has to face students who have all ideals for nothing. His poetic nature must be confronted with the behaviour of youth deprived of any role models.
The play, directed by Michał Kwieciński, has already been shown in tens of countries all over the world. It provokes discussion and poses many questions concerning the teacher-student relationship. The premiere performance took place in the autumn of 2004. One of the most outstanding Polish actors – Wojciech Pszoniak – takes the role of the protagonist teacher.
