In the first year of high school, I met my polish and literature teacher, who turned out to be the best teacher I’ve ever had! She was the one who gave me my passion for theatre. Each month, she gave us a list of plays being performed that she recommends or that have good reviews. Then every week in our special interests group, we discussed every play – the topic of the play, our insights, sentiments and even a few reviews and a topic. I found it to be so useful and pleasant. Eventually, I started choosing plays on my own in order to explore the other theatres and directors in my city. I think about a year ago, it certainly became my “addiction”! I even had to reduce the number of plays I attended to one per week.
Now, two years later, I notice that I’m much more aware of theatre and I believe that I can better understand every play I see, take note of the directors’ work and fully appreciate brilliant acting. Through these years, theater has become my favorite way of spending my free evenings. Additionally, theater is a place where I can separate myself from the whole world for 2 hours (or more) and truly rest.
