Frumpy, unnecessary, unhappy! This is how the words feel: Bullet and Toperz. They would prefer to be Kura and NieToperz, or possibly Taktoperz. Unfortunately, they got the incorrect sound from some little girl who had not yet learned to speak properly. And so it has remained.
Kula and Toperz are unable to find themselves in their current characters. Each of them dreams of a different, better self. Each would like to mean "more." Just who or what can help them do that? The Polish language itself is constantly being crippled and treated as an object, the Logoped doesn't see words in them, only ball and furry, and the Ugly Word... got away! How about plastic surgery, then?
Malina Prześluga's play is not only a witty and surprising play on words, but also a text about the search for one's own identity and self-acceptance
The play takes part in the 29th Competition for the Exhibition of Polish Contemporary Art.
