„Snow” was staged by Grzegorz Wiśniewski (who won the Konrad Swinarski prize in 2010) and is well known to the Toruń audience for „Maria Stuart” by Friederich Schiller which he staged at the Horzyca Theatre in 2008. „Snow” is based on two plays by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (aka Witkacy). The central theme evolves around a realistic mother figure – symbol of loneliness and unfulfilment. The characters seek solace in drugs (cocaine – „white fairy”, „white madness”, and „snow”). The coke trip takes them to a different level of consciousness. In Grzegorz Wiśniewski’s adaptation, „Water Hen” is the world of hallucinations in which events are not ruled by any logical principles but only reflect, like a mirror, the amplified terror experienced by the characters, as well as their desolation, phobia and emotional void. But while the coke trip lasts „one is at the very centre of the hideousness of the world, and existence in particular.” (Witkacy)
