Play-reading at Rozbitek Institute

Transatlantyk Festival & Rozbitek Institute ?Theater to Film  Development Program? presents: A Death in Columbia.

You are invited to a reading of Shem Bitterman's A Death in Columbia at the Rozbitek Institute, starring Frances Fisher, Joe Regalbuto, and Julia Pietrucha. Bitterman's play has received rave reviews in the U.S. and we are thrilled to be able to present it in Poland.
The reading is part of the Rozbitek Institute and Transatlantyk Festival program of developing films out of outstanding theater, which allows the reading audience to observe the intimate and emotional interaction between actor and director as the play
transitions from stage to screen.

Last year's performance of Bitterman's "Influence" was a captivating experience, largely in part to actors James Cromwell, Danuta Stenka, Alan Rosenberg, Robert Chicchini, Stephanie Leonidas and Patrick Flueger. The unforgettable atmosphere of the Rozbitek Institute lent a little magic as well.

We are excited to be able to share this experience with you this year.

This theatrical feast will take place at Rozbitek Institute on August 20th, at 18.00 hrs. Tickets are available here: Festival provides also free transport to Rozbitek Institute.

Colombia, 1992. Rival factions battle for power in a country on the brink of civil war. And the
cost of life is cheap, even for foreigners. In a cloistered apartment in the capital, American
anthropologist LISA FINE awaits the return of her missing activist husband. Has he been
kidnapped? Is he dead? When she receives an unexpected visit from ROGER BAINBRIDGE,
an old friend of her husband?s, Lisa?s suspicions quickly turn to paranoia as secrets are revealed
and lies uncovered. Soon a dangerous game is being played between the two - the stakes of
which are life itself.
