Opening: Lazaristes Monastery - Sokratis Karantinos Stage, 18/10/2013
L’ Atelier (‘The Tailor’s Shop') by Jean-Claude Grumberg, the masterpiece of contemporary French theatre, which has won major theatre awards and has been presented in many countries, will have its Greek premiere from NTNG. The global success of the play has established its author among the most important contemporary playwrights. Through memories, L’ Atelier takes us on a journey with humour and emotion in a wounded Paris, as it emerged from the Second World War. It's a portrait in miniature of a world experiencing everyday life as it looks optimistically to the future. As the well known drama critic Dominique Jamet has written: "... The lips laugh and the eyes fill with tears. A penetrating and at the same time tender look at people and events." The show, with a modern directorial approach, aims to find parallels between postwar France and now and to redefine important historical events.
