A Time to Reap

By Anna Wakulik Translated by Catherine Grosvenor

Paperback £9.99£7.99

From a forested Polish village to the blinding lights of London, A Time to Reap looks at one woman's story against the mountain landscape of an evolving nation and one of Poland's hottest political topics – abortion and the Catholic Church.

Anna Wakulik's startling play A Time to Reap was first performed, in this English translation by Catherine Grosvenor, at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in February 2013.

The play was developed by the Royal Court from its 2011 International Residency for Emerging Playwrights.
