Ivona, Princess of Burgundia: productions

 

 


Witold Gombrowicz’s work was performed for the first time with the production of Ivona at the Polish Army Theater in Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science in November 1957. The theater was baptized “Teatr Dramatyczny” on this occasion. The name remains today.
Halina Mikołajska directed the production. Barbara Krafftówna played Ivona.

Communist Poland then experienced a short political thaw, during which Witold Gombrowicz’s work saw publication, with the exception of the Diary.
In February 1958, after two months of performances, Ivona was pulled from the stage. Gombrowicz’s work would not be published in Poland again until 1986; however, his dramas would see production there from 1974 on.
