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.
Janusz Glowacki was attending the London opening of Cinders in December 1981 when martial law was declared in Poland. He decided not to return and moved with his family to New York. Playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and essayist, Glowacki is the author of six plays, six screenplays, and ten books, including the novel Give Us This Day (1985). He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Playwriting Fellowship.
