Tomasz Międzik

40 years in theatre. In the same theatre. I ran away twice. I spent three years away from it. I was searching. I thought I would find something equally fascinating. I did not. I came back. If you want, you can come and see the performances in which I’m one of the actors. Well, OK... Just come to our Theatre! To my Theatre! Amen.
