POREIA THEATRE

SEASON 2016-2017

This season's repertoire starts off at the end of September with the multi-award winning production The Great Chimera. The M. Karagatsis best seller, adapted by Stratis Paschalis and directed by Dimitri Tarlow, has been sold out since it was first produced for the Athens and Epidaurus Festival in July 2014 and seen by more than 60.000 people. Three Sisters, Chekhov's masterpiece, follows in October. Tarlow gives the story a twist by talking about the Greek depression and the desperate need for a better life in a production that has received enthusiastic reviews and has also been sold out since last February. Finally, in January, after many years, Yiannis Houvardas returns to comedy and vaudeville by directing Labiche's rarely staged play: Le Plus heureux des trois with a very strong cast, which includes Christos Loulis, Lena Papaligoura, Laertis Malkotsis, Aggelos Papadimitriou, Ioanna Kolliopoulou and Tarlow himself, as an actor this time.
