Two doctors: Józef Dietl – a retired doctor and the president of Krakow, and young Stanisław Kurkiewicz – the pioneer of Polish sexology. They meet at the end of the 19th century in a Krakow salon in order to co-treat an elegant, mature female patient. With light-heartedness and humour, they reveal to us the secrets of the then Krakow, the Polish sexological terminology and... theatre.
Of Two Doctors... is a play written especially for our actors by Maciej Wojtyszko, who is well known to Krakow audiences. He applies remarkable insight and sense of humour in order to delve into the issues and biographies of the past so as to extract from them the contents which perfectly resonate with the present.
