Play EMIGRES absurd dialogue about life, proving that life itself is absurd to the level that it becomes the material for drama, theater, converting absurd in life to the stage. This performance is a story about immigrants, who remain refugees in their soul, about new worlds of the new country and about the idea, that its impossible to run from yourself. EMIGRES is one of the most famous plays by Mrozek about two immigrants, living in America. Two opposites, two characters are bumped into each other and have to coexist together. Cynic filled with irony poison, and simple-hearted practitioner, considering himself a great sly, whos hiding his money into a crumpled ragged toy, which he always carries with him. Intellectual disdains his fellow countryman, considering him an absolute slave to money, and constantly tries to make him understand that. He in return, lives with earthly standards, dreaming of a house, because LIVE IS THERE, WHERE THE HOUSE IS and childishly attempts to defend against the attacks of his opponent.
