The show combines a spectacular career of Nirvana with the reality of Polish show business in nineties, when a success – understood as the only option in life – was imprinted in a social mentality. It’s a musical story on schemes, limitations and trivialized ways of possible career. Courtney Love – who faithfully accompanied the great success of Nirvana and in the same time she was accused for leading to the collapse of this group – becomes a figure who very easily catalyses all negative effects of a capitalistic reality. A worker is treated either as a commodity or as a client. Monika Strzepka’s daring directing, Pawel Demirski’s uncompromising play, and many evergreens of Nirvana and Hole performed life by actresses and actors of Polski Theatre made this show unforgettable.
