Evros Across from Us

2013-2014 Macedonia – Thrace Unit
Evros Across from Us - Thanassis Papathanassiou, Mihalis Reppas
Launch: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 29/11/2013

Four unemployed Greeks residing on the outskirts of "prosperity." Spectators and outsiders at our European showcase. Four Europeans stuck in second gear. And suddenly into their environment comes a stranger. A Kurdish refugee. Unprotected. A fourth-class citizen. Papathanasiou-Reppa’s text explores a bitter truth of modern reality: how and why four different people with different characters, different and competing interests, different demands, different dead-ends for completely different reasons, get together and go along with the undercurrent of racism which flows through and erodes our society. This is the first staging of Evros Across from Us by NTNG.

Playwright: Mihalis Reppas
