Longing and loneliness are the same for everyone

Sławomir Mrożek, probably the most known and most played Polish playwright, wrote “Emigrants” in 1974 while living abroad in France. Two Eastern European migrants share a shabby basement apartment in an unnamed Western European town. One of them is a political asylum seeker, the other a simpler worker earning money for his family back home. Their two radically different worldviews clash in a humorous verbal ping-pong match, yet both of the characters are united by the inescapable sadness of being isolated. Mrożek’s play is both timeless and at the same time very timely in the current era where a lot of people across the globe live far from their homes, either forced or voluntarily.
