Stańczyk's Petty Love-Affairs

A funny short story about the romantic andventures of the famous jester and other royal courtiers. King Sigimundus I and Bona’s, temperament Italian lady, court. A new maiden – Katarzyna – arrives. Beautiful lady-in-waiting quickly bewitches Stańczyk with her charms – the feeling is not mutual, however, as Kasia is in love with a young king’s courtsman. Meanwhile, Stańczyk himself is an object of passion of a fearsome and jealous hofmeister-lady..

The play premiered in 2012. Prepared for the Historical Museum of Kraków as a part of the Long Night of the Museums.
