Οn the Road With PAOK - Stavros Tsiolis
Repeat: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 23/11/2016
Opening: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 18/05/2016
The play involves the historical trip of 2.500 PAOK FC supporters to Athens by rail to watch their favourite team play against Olympiakos FC. Among the supporters were also two young women who wanted to meet at the Larissa Railway Station a famous Greek pop singer whom the younger one has asked out -with a letter- for a date.
A play that has been discussed intensively, as it was linked to warm-blooded football fans incidents when it was staged in 2011 at Karolos Koun’s Art Theatre (Theatro Technis), but still full of humour and tenderness.
A performance addressed both to male and female audience, as stated Stavros Tsiolis too: On the road with PAOK” both girls find in their favourite football team the companionship, the power to dream and hope.
