Calliope, a young chambermaid, disrupts the life of the haut-bourgeois family Georgiadis. One April, she comes into their homes and their lives, and leads into temptation and acts of infidelity all the males of the family and beyond.
It’s a play about the temptations of the flesh and male infidelity, a play about the game of sex and the trials of spousal relations, where love comes out a winner.
And about Temptation itself, which starts a new life.
But it is also a play with a political complexion, about the poor and the rich, about "those fated to work for people", and the beauty of solidarity.
Grigorios Xenopoulos, a superb analyst of the soul, dissects without moralizing all aspects of his multiple sexual triangles: from the root of the trouble to the man who fatefully succumbs, to the one – male or female – who suffers from betrayal born of infidelity.
The heroes become victimizers and victims, they exchange roles, experience happiness and unhappiness, cry, laugh, love, hate, forgive, betray and are betrayed, assert claims or resign them, bow down before their fate or challenge it, but no one says no to the wonderful game of Eros. No one.
