This offbeat comedy features an immigrant couple from Poland who are having a hard time in their strange new country. Anka, a well known actress in Warsaw, can’t get work because of her accent; Jan, a writer, is struggling with writer’s block. As they try to get some sleep, flash backs bring characters from their past, present, dreams, and nightmares crawling from beneath the bed. This multi-layered comedy examines the possibility that, while you may not be able to go home again, that doesn’t mean home can’t keep messing with your head.
“Hunting Cockroaches” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
