WE WILL EAT YOUR CHILDREN. WITH ONION!
More than 50% of Polish women and men believe that homosexuality is a deviation from the norm, but should be tolerated. Another 16% - that it is a normal thing. At the same time, as many as 66% of us think that gay and lesbian couples should not publicly display their way of life (April CBOS survey "Poles' attitude to homosexual relationships").
That is to say: they can live, but let them not go around. I understand, but... I tolerate, but... Let them live, but... We can interpret the research in various ways. But do a few reassuring indicators allow us to sleep soundly and pretend that "everything is fine"?
At a similar time, he conducted an IPSOS survey asking Polish women and men about the biggest threats to Poland. Among men between the ages of 18 and 39, gender and LGBT+ ideology won, distancing the climate crisis and an aging population. So perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that, having recognized the threat, Poles are standing up for values? A couple from Lublin brings a self-constructed explosive to an equality march, in Bialystok stones and bottles go into action, in Wroclaw a journalist who draws attention to homophobic graffiti ends up with a bloody face and a broken nose.
What does the "LGBT lobby" want to teach children? Do all gay people go to parades? Why, when driving a car toward L, G and B tolerance, do they keep, T in the trunk? Why do 67% of citizens say they have never met any gay or lesbian person in person? Where are bi people in all this? Who should be afraid of whom? And finally: can the hostile tribes living in Poland still talk to each other?
"We will eat your children. With onion" is a documentary performance based on interviews with members of the LGBT+ community and non-heterosexuals who shun the acronym. A story about being different HERE and NOW - in Poland after Bialystok, after the "rainbow plague", "LGBT indoctrination" and "gender ideology". About the people. With their fears, dreams, fears and anger.
The play was awarded at the 20th Festival of Contemporary Drama in Zabrze.
Spectacle awarded with the "Worth 2021" prize of Wroclaw's "Wyborcza" newspaper.
„We will eat your children. With onions" impressed me with reliability, honesty and sincerity. "

„However, this is not a one-woman show with an exclusively accusatory tone. Its characters also talk about their happiness, building self-confidence and strength, helping them fight for their own rights and dignity."

„The creators, including those who appeared on stage only to applause (a well-deserved standing ovation!) are to be congratulated not only for the high quality of their artistic work, but also for their courage in tackling the subject."
