A castle now in disrepair…
Its lands long parceled out to heirs…

A boundary wall in sharp dispute…
A squabble grown into a feud…
Men marked by jealousy and spite…
Will love suffice to set things right?

If you’ve quibbled with your neighbor
You will find here much to savor.
And if you haven’t—good for you!
We’re sure that you’ll enjoy it, too.

Considered the finest Polish comedy ever written, this 19th century verse drama uses Molière-like wit to poke fun of human follies. Upstream takes the hijinks to another level by presenting the play as performed by an actual amateur Polish immigrant theater from the 1930s. A sympathetic satire with a focus on tolerance.
