Janusz Glowacki's highly theatrical and often hilarious works concern the immigrant experience of the Eastern European in America, the struggles of the individual in a repressive state, and the manipulations of political and social power. The girls' reform school of "Cinders, "the Lower East Side tenement of "Hunting Cockroaches, "and the Norwegian court littered with bodies in "Fortinbras Gets Drunk" serve as backdrops for Glowacki's tragicomic explorations of the play within the play of contemporary existence.
