The writer Stanisława Przybyszewska, historical figure, is working on her new work -
a novel about Maximillien Robespierre and Olympe de Gouges, author of the Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen, 1791. "Olympia of Gdańsk is a play about possession. It may lead to a desire of rising above mediocrity motivated by revenge. Possession can be like an addiction to totalitarian power or to fame for any price, to drugs, to forbidden desires, to escape in madness. The road to liberation is finding one’s own truth even for the price of life". - Krystyna de Obaldia
