Baron von Münchhausen for Adults

Maciej Wojtyszko directs his own play about the famous adventurer and mystifier.

Baron von Münchhausen lived in the 18th century and told incredible stories about himself, and thus entered literature as a half-fantasy, half-real character. To this day, it is unclear what he made up about himself and what was attributed to him; he has become a symbol of colorful blandness.

In Maciej Wojtyszko's play it takes on more serious tones. Münchhausen appears as an old man, suffering the dangerous consequences of his actions, but still proclaiming the glory of fantasy. He refuses to take the world completely seriously and is still willing to pull himself by the hair out of any situation.
