The Girl From Samos (Samia)

The Girl From Samos (Samia) - Menander
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 22/12/2000

How does one overcome the small social scandals between the ancient Athenian society and modern Greece? Family quarrels, lost infants, cancelled weddings, secret affairs: have all these facts, probably, been the food of comic tradition for centuries? Menandros, the 'father' of European comedy along with Aristofanis, is re-discovered, up-to-date and truly enjoyable, in a light-hearted performance, full of music and song, in a titillating, wonderful show.
