Abstract: The article is dedicated to a number of issues, or rather “sore spots” of Polish theater of the last few years. The object of an article is a case study based on a specific examples of leading directors of present-day Polish stage — Jerzy Grzegorzewski, Krystian Lupa, Kshishstof Warlikowski, Gzhegozh Jarzyna, Maiia Kleczewska, Jan Klata — of successful realization of classics and modern drama or, on the contrary, the exploitation of “stylish” expressive moves (right up to spilling unlimited amount of stage blood or motiveless nudity) of the world theater, in reliance on groundlings. Various interpretations of the world (Shakespeare, Chekhov), national classics (Wyspjanski) and modern play are also under study.
Keywords: Polish theater, director`s staging, Polish drama, audience`s perception, expressive image, tradition, innovating.
