||Nomad Theatrical Co. presents POLANSKI POLANSKI (a One - Man Interrogation of Roman Polanski), a new play by Saviana Stanescu, performed by Grant Neale and directed by Tamilla Woodward.
In 1977, legendary filmmaker Roman Polanski was arrested on molestation charges and plead guilty to one of seven counts related to his actions with a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles. Remanded to Chino State prison for a 90-day psychological evaluation and released after 42 days, Polanski fled the U.S. in 1978 and was again arrested 31 years later in Switzerland. After two months in jail he was allowed to wait out extradition proceedings under house arrest in his Swiss Chalet. POLANSKI POLANSKI coaxes the psycho-emotional workings of a complex mind, as in Polanski's own work. What happens when Polanski interrogates Polanski?
