Last Tango in Poland: Farewell to Sławomir Mrożek

Sławomir Mrożek, 1930-2013

On August 15th the world theater lost one of its finest. Sławomir Mrożek, the brilliant, world-famous Polish dramatist, died at the age of 83 in Nice, France, his home since 2008. For international theater-going audiences, Mrożek is most famous for his absurd comedies, two of which, Strip-tease (1961) and the iconic Tango (1965), have been critically acclaimed as modern masterpieces of world drama. In Poland, however, in addition to being known for his playwriting, Mrożek is also highly regarded as a writer and a cartoonist.
