THE BACKYARD OF MIRACLES from the 7th of October at the Lazaristes Monastery > (04/10/2017)



14 years after his last collaboration with the National Theatre of Northern Greece, Kostas Tsianos, one of the most important Greek directors, returns to direct a landmark work of modern Greek dramaturgy, the “Backyard of Μiracles” by Iakovos Kambanellis. A play that, 60 years after its first presentation, remains timeless. 


End of the 1950s. A backyard, in a working-class neighbourhood of Athens, is the meeting point of various characters from different backgrounds: an old refugee from Asia Minor who, loaded with his mattresses, goes to sleep on the rooftop; his wife who, holding a slice of bread in her hand, calls her lost grandson, a widow; a dreamer; a young couple at times hugging and at times quarreling, while planning to move to Australia; the neighbourhood’s beauty who dreams of becoming a movie star; a plumber who will play a decisive part.

This small space contains all Greece. Just before it collapses, a question arises: dead-end or miracle?
