Ambassador Theater invites you on a very special spiritual journey to achieve perfection.  Is it even possible? Is there a place on earth where our problems can disappear? A place where money is of no value? A place where we can truly be ourselves?  These questions are asked by the characters of “The Third Breast”, who attempt to escape from everyday life in search of true identity. The play written in 1975 by one of Poland’s ‘angry young men,’ Ireneusz IredyÅ„ski (1939-1985), explores such themes as addiction to power; fear of the other; the search for an absolute; love and erotic fascination; the consequences of blind faith.

Iredyński’s fame stemmed from his non-conformist streak, and his anti-communist views soon found their way into his writing.  He would later say that his literary characters were a projection of his imagination, dreams, anxieties, knowledge, viewpoint and subconscious.
