NO MATTER HOW HARD WE TRIED
Or We Exist on the Best Terms We Can
by Dorota Masłowska
directed by Matthew McCray
No Matter How Hard We Tried is a sharp-witted comedy that explores celebrity, pop-culture, commercialism and privilege, placing it directly in the shadow of Poland’s tragic past and its poor and struggling lower classes. As a family attempts to deal with the unfortunate realities of their mundane and difficult lives, escapism and false reality reveal themselves as their only comfort in a world that has forgotten them.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating limited. Please reserve your seat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
