POREIA THEATRE

SEASON 2021-2022

After 10 years of successful plays, Poreia Theatre was the first of the privately owned theatrical companies to present the entirety of its scheduled repertoire live during the pandemic, without compromising any of its artistry. Now, the theatre is safely welcoming audiences back in person with six very important productions:

- Argyris Pandazaras’ This is not Romeo & Juliet , based on Shakespeare’s masterpiece, continues its successful run with the addition of new dates. Featuring Argyris Pandazaras and Sissy Toumasi, it’s a perpetual roleplaying game that’s set to seduce audiences, while blurring the boundaries between myth and reality.

- “The Night of the Iguana” , one of the most charming yet least performed of all Tennessee Williams' major plays.

On a distant hill somewhere in Mexico, hotel “Costa Verde”, run by overly sexual Maxine, provides shelter for restless souls: a defrocked minister, currently working as a tour guide, and a painter chaperoning her elderly grandfather. For less than 24 hours, we watch the characters of this play confront their own self-deceptions about life, religion and love, while seeking solace in the kindness of strangers.

Starting October 20, the play will run for an entire month.
