„The Horizon” of Wiesław Myśliwski is one of the most beautiful Polish epics about village, as evidenced by the Nike Prize awarded a few years ago. It’s a subjective and in many threads autobiographical story, and at the same time and extremely beautiful testament of „that time” and „that place”. The author, looking back to the past of his relatives and his own, simultaneously shows a wider social background, which is the village and small town during the war and in the second half of the twentieth century.

Following the Proustian melancholy included in the novel, the creators of the play want to ask if the lost time of main character’s youth and childhood isn’t a memory of the peasant culture that has passed away. In the era of globalization, the Internet, free movement between the village and the city, is the village the same place as it used to be? Does it keep its cultural separateness or do villagers prefer to identify with urban culture? Or maybe we don’t appreciate peasantry, maybe it’s more present in our mentality than we want to visualize it?
