This one is a curiosity. The play well-known in Poland as Fabryka Absolutu, adapted from the novel by Czech writer Karel Capek, was assigned an English title for a its run at STG Theater in the city of Gliwice. Sawka's poster art does not clear up the situation whatsoever, but it's an intriguing piece nevertheless.
