Małgorzata Sikorska-Miszczuk has written film and TV scripts, short stories, and radio plays, in addition to dramatic works for the stage. The Suitcase won the competition “Metaphors of Reality,” organized by the Polish Theatre in Poznań. The play also received an award at the Festival of Polish Contemporary Plays in Gdynia, and the radio production of The Suitcase was awarded the Grand Prix of the Polish Radio and Television Theatre Festival in 2009. Sikorska’s play The Death of the Squirrel-Man won first prize in a competition for a play about Ulrike Meinhof held by Teatr Usta Usta, Poznań and Teatr Rozmaitosci, Warsaw. The performance was invited to represent new Polish drama at the 2008 “New Plays from Europe” biennale in Wiesbaden, Germany. The play appears in the recent PAJ volume, New Europe: Plays from the Continent. The author’s recent plays, Madonna and Loose Screws, have also been award-winning efforts. Sikorska’s plays are published in a number of anthologies of contemporary Polish drama, translated into French, German, Swiss, and Romanian, in addition to English. She lives in Warsaw.
