About this show

After successful representations in London, Zürich, Munich, and Bucharest, Why the Child Is Cooking in the Polenta is going to be staged in New York this November! A play that can be staged in three languages (German, English, and Romanian) and has already been applauded by audiences in four countries.

With a mother that hangs by her hair and a father that is clown, Aglaja has one wish: to become as famous as Sophia Loren when she grows up. But the family lives always on the road after fleeing their own country in search of fame and luxury in the West. Will the family's ambitions prove to be only mere illusions?
