The Father War

1987-1988 National Theatre of Northern Greece
The Father War - Iakovos Kabanellis
Opening: Theatro Dassous, 10/07/1987

Based upon historic facts and more specifically on the siege of Rhodes, Iakovos Kampanellis wrote in 1952, the play 'The Father War'. It is about a kind of satire of the war, influenced by the strain of the cold-war period, which was 'accompanied' by great expectations. 'The hope that the war which was over in Greece a few years earlier was the last one, resembled to a childish ingenuousness. The situation was also then vague and threatening. The allies as if they were infected by the evil against which they had fought, became its winners and successors' the writer notes.
