What do we do when we are not sure about something?
Is that what we see real?
How do we interpret people and events?
The way we want it, or the way it is?
Can one suggestive thought change us?

‘Doubt’ is art without simple solutions. You have to decide which side you will stand for.
John Patrick Shanley – the Oscar winner, talks about the world where clichés and stereotypes imposed on people around us dominate our perception of reality.
There are desires and fears that you know well. There are thoughts that you cannot control and words that can irreversibly destroy someone’s life.

The media about the performance

I have no doubt that this is the best part of Judyta Paradzińska for years. She’s steadfast in peace, confident in every word she says and every gesture she does. Immaculate in facial expression. Karolina Kuklińska seems to be one of the leading actresses in TJK’s team. The rage in which she falls and naivety she experiences bordering with confidence makes me craving for more Kuklińska on stage.

Norbert Rakowski directed a solid, suspenseful spectacle. There are no oddities, dances and twists, only  great acting raising content know from reality.
Barbara Gruszka – Zych, Gość Niedzielny

It is without a doubt a perfect spectacle. Director Norbert Rakowski did not allow anyone on the stage to take an unnecessary or false step. These four actors (because there are also: Karolina Kuklińska and Dorota Chaniecka) work with voices so much that a man sits in the audience and scratches the back of an armchair because he doesn’t know what to do with himself.
