Polish professional theatre group Teatr troche inny is made up of people with learning disabilities and those suffering social exclusion. ‘Without words’ is based on three one act plays from Samuel Beckett – Act without words I, Act without words II and Catastrophe. The plays explore the themes of the right to personal freedom and the right to a life amongst others. The life conditions that ‘the others’ impose on us are presented in direct, almost brutal scenes. However, in each play in the end the protagonists taste victory. Heads held high, fighting for respect and uncovering lies and manipulation of their surroundings, even though no one would expect it from them.

Proces, as all the performances by Teatr Trochę Inny, is ambiguous and very symbolical. Three main heroes - Josephs - are fighting the cruel system machine. They are looking for a way out of the office and institutions labirynth. It turns out they are totally alone. They are actually surrounded by uncles, aunts, attorneys and assistants. But no-one gives them real support, no-one is in touch. Fed with 'good
advice', they can count on themselves only. Finally they win the case but cannot break the walls of misunderstanding, indifference, isolation. In the end they are standing on an abandonded stage, with their back on the audience, looking for a human through imaginary windows.
