The play "The Witches of Salem" is being widely talked about. A loud applause and standing ovation at the premiere have been repeated after every performance.

On stage perform: Agnieszka Więdłocha, Marek Nędza, Andrzej Wichrowski, Dorota Kiełkowicz, Bogusław Suszka, Carime Yokam, our school’s professors: Irek Czop, Michał Staszczak, Zofia Uzelac, Matylda Paszczenko, Piotr Krukowski and our students: Anna Paliga, Izabela Dudziak, Paulina Walendziak, Elżbieta Zajko. Direction: Lodz Film School Rector, Mariusz Grzegorzek, who introduced the play, "The Witches of Salem" with these words. ‘It’s going to be a rich, juicy theatre, an absolute theatre. In the performance, human primeval energy deprived of all conventions will be released, some shell and human batter. Undoubtedly, it is going to be a performance involving deep emotions.

 The last sentence is extremely prophetic because the play generates and evokes deep emotions from the start. Lots of collodion photos of the actors appeared around the city https://www.facebook.com/pg/czarownicezsalem/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1932296050375975. A fragment of the play depicting the Salem atmosphere is available on the net. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdYZPsRPB18).

We asked folks a question, ‘Are you possessed? The response to the advice "Go to the Theatre!" was swift – crowds in the audience. However, there is one slight problem – there aren’t enough performances of "The Witches"

 Here are some reviews of the play:

 "The new play directed by Mariusz Grzegorzek and staged at Jaracza Theatre is the theatre’s acting reactivation and return to theatre which is precise, complete, and at the same time not ordinary, theatre which undertakes artistic risks. Theatre which is an in-depth conversation about that strange creature, the human being. It’s also a total theatre, on drugs!" "JESUS IS A HOLOGRAM? AND EVIL?" /Łukasz Kaczyński, Kalejdoskop/

Direction, art direction and costumes: Rector, Prof. Mariusz Grzegorzek. Saturday’s premiere turned out to be a manifestation of the power of theatre" "HOW EVIL IS BORN.

 "Lodz ‘The Withes of Salem’ is a  passionate, very sensual, pulsating play which in terms of aesthetics reminds us of those plays directed by Grzegorzek a decade earlier at the Jaracza Theatre, namely: ‘Lew na ulicy’, ‘Habitat’ and ‘Blask życia’. Everything on the stage is vibrating. Simplistic art direction consisting of large sheets of fabric, at times shaking and then motionless in a peculiar stupor, creates an interesting space for violent emotions deriving from the dramaturgical layer" "FROM MACIEJEWSKI’S ARMCHAIR. THE DEVIL WHICH IS PRESENT" /Łukasz Maciejewski, Polish Section of the International Theatre Critics Association/

 "A group of students with Więdłocha, the most experienced of them, created together we can say yet another character, not named in the play, who is possessed, trapped, mad. As a group they become very convincing. They embody all that shook the monotonous everyday life of small Salem. Wild, animalistic at times, perfect in their dalliance with the devil" "THE WITCHES OF SALEM. BAD GIRLS" /Maciej Kędziak, Onet/
