This story will be about Kuba. A man with an intellectual disability who is ‘in his forties’. Kuba likes soup, his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, and wants everyone to be ‘good’. Kuba dislikes the ‘bigos’ cabbage stew, stairs and bad people. Therefore Kuba dreams of changing the world and making it a better place. And when he sees that opportunity, he does precisely that. As best as he can.
Moron is the world premiere of the drama that won the Gdynia Drama Award for the best text in 2020. A drama, which in a clever and witty way addresses the complex topic regarding people with disabilities and the world which tries – or sometimes doesn't try at all – to start a dialogue with it. And dialogue is necessary, as long as it’s conducted with wisdom, empathy and sensitivity.
