Poster: "Alpha" (1984)
Poster for the 1984 production of "Alpha" by Slawomir Mrozek, directed by John Beary. The figure in the poster bears a striking resemblance to Polish leader and Nobel Prize Winner Lech Walesa. The piece is a minutely detailed, although fictionalized staging of the events in Poland following the demise of Solidarity in December 1981. The play centers on a Walesa-like figure and describes his internment and his interaction with the representatives of the Polish government.
Date valid: October 4 – 21, 1984
