Sławomir Szczerek, "Nowa SIła Krytyczna":
In "Ashes" everything worked - from themes and acting to scenography. This performance showed how monodrama can be dusted off and given a new theatrical form. Lipiecki plays with a theme of a parent death being affectionate, hilarious and sincere.
Adam Nalepa, "Teatr Boto"
A moving, masterfully acted and directed performance that juggles with our emotions, balances on the border of correctness, performs twine between extreme contrasts: a stand-up and a funeral. And it shows how one can come to terms with one's own trauma.
