Play offends Polish Catholics

Thousands of Catholics demonstrated in the Silesian city of Chorzów and other Polish cities on the weekend to prevent performances of Gólgota Picnic. The play by director Rodrigo García features among other things a bizarre Last Supper scene. Aleksandra Pietryga of the national religious portal Gość Niedzielny backs the protest: "I am fiercely opposed to the fact that someone has turned my salvation into a pornographic farce and shows moaning masturbators on Calvary Hill [where Jesus was crucified]. I first learned that a film version of this play was to be screened in the theatre in Chorzów on Facebook. On the following morning I then received the shocking official news that this normally serious institution was planning to show this pseudo play. Thank goodness this blasphemous, vulgar spectacle that offends not only the feelings of Christians has already been cancelled in Poznań."
