Witkacy's send-up assumes the shape of a ghost tale choked with surprises, during which a complete relatives of 4 is gleefully dispatched to the opposite global. while it used to be first played in 1923 in Torun, Country House was once judged fallacious for most of the people since it derided ethical, social and dramatic conference. 3 years later, as directed by way of the playwright himself in Lwów, the drama proved an unforeseen luck with audiences (although it simply ran for 4 nights) and ever due to the fact has been between Witkacy's most often played works.
