Take a Joke
Since this blurb is about a play titled Polish Joke, it only seems appropriate to offer a guffaw originating in humor of the Polish persuasion. The Canonical List of Polish Jokes online didn't help much since their server was downunless that was the joke. So next on the list was, simply enough...PolishJoke.com. Here goes: Did you hear about the Polish admiral who wanted to be buried at sea when he died? Five sailors died digging his grave. Badum-bum! Thank you! I'm here every Wednesday. But seriously folks, did you hear about the Polish family that froze to death outside a theater? They were waiting to see the movie "Closed for the Winter." I'm not really sure if these are non-PC but I got a chuckle (plus, I'm still waiting for my first letter to the editor). David Ives' intentionally non-PC play about ethnic identity will probably do a better job eliciting laughs, as character Jasiu learns about, hides and then embraces his Polishness. See for yourself as it makes its north Texas premiere this month. Directed by Jeremy Ferman, Polish Joke runs Friday through July 2 at Grapevine's Runway Theatre, 215 N. Dooley St. Call 817-488-4842 or visit runwaytheatre.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: June 16. Continues through July 2
