The Polish Drama Theatre “Fantazja” was formed in 2002 as a non-profit organisation and its work is supported by sponsors.
It would be difficult to say that it is an amateur theatre, since many of its actors have formal drama training. The group works in cooperation with professional set designers, musicians, artists, as well as film directors. The Artistic Director of Theatre Fantazja is Joanna Borkowska-Surucic, a graduate of Polish Film Academy in film editing and Australian Film & Radio School in video editing.
Over seven years, the group has performed the following plays: “Moralnosc pani Dulskiej” (" Morality of Mrs Dulska") by Gabriela Zapolska, “Lekkomyslna siostra” ("Reckless Sister") by Wlodzimierz Perzynski, " Foltas” based on a play by Jerzy Jurandot “Maz Foltasiowny” ("Foltas' Husband"), “Divertimento zmieszane” ("Divertimento Mixed") and “Divertimento zmieszane poraz drugi” ( "Divertimento Mixed Again") based on texts by Jeremi Przybora, “Party - wariacje na temat” ("Party -varations on a theme") based on Marek Gronski’s play " Party” and a number of stage productions for special occasions.

The latest theatre productions include the modern plays: "Roszada" ("Castling"), "Zelazna Konstrukcja " ("Iron Construction"), "Amerykanski Wspolnik" ("American Partner"), "Klub Kobiet Porzuconych" ("Abandon Women Club") and "Grzechy Starosci-wariacje na temat" ("Sins of Old Age- varations on a theme").
Play “Roszada” ("Castling") by Pawel Mossakowski was the most popular and the most performed theatre production. This is a modern Romeo and Juliet story of young people who came from different families. These families despite mutual feelings have to adapt to the new situation. The comedy is full of surprises and twists, quick dialogues and astonishing stage design. The play does not only entertain but also educate, this production is well exposed to the audience of all generations.

Fantazyjni...piora Eli Chylewskiej
Stwory wyobrazni, fantazyjni ludzie
spelniaja zyczenia swoje, cudze,
zmyslonym postaciom daja zycie
na sezon, dwa, na dluzej...
Byc z nimi chca jak kochankowie
daruja cialo, dusze, zdrowie,
i szept, i krzyk, i wycie
co serce im podpowie.
Jak zakochani chca byc razem,
klada odswietne makijaze
spojni w milosci, pewni rol
Zyja zwiazani przyrzeczeniem
z piekna, tragiczna Melpomene
kurtyna w gore, maski w dol,
