From the writer and director behind the award-winning hit Netflix film adaptation; witness the UK stage premiere of the original theatre production of TR Warszawa’s ‘Pieces of a Woman’.

This evocative and cinematic stage play is an intimate look into a fracturing family dynamic in the wake of a young woman’s personal tragedy.

Set against the backdrop of present-day Warsaw, 30-year-old Maja comes to terms with a traumatic loss. To rebuild, she must grapple with taking back her own autonomy whilst reconciling with her grief and the conflicting attitudes placed upon her by her family and wider Polish society.

Through a combination of captivating cinematography and sensitive performances, Pieces of a Woman paints a deeply personal picture into one woman’s fight to decide her own future, whilst detailing the rippling impact this has across generations of one family.

Presented in Polish with English subtitles
