Stage 018 of THOC presents the play "Petros' war" based on the homonymous novel of Alki Zei directed by Takis Tzamargias.
Petros, a nine year old boy, is very sad because his cricket is dead. His elder sister, Antigone, wants to give him the box of her bracelet for burying it. Petros prefers to squeeze it in the crevice of the girder. But he didn’t have the time. The next morning he was waken up abruptly by his mother. “Wake up and get ready. There is war! Can’t you listen to the sirens?” It was the 28th of October 1940. Petros knows about the war in his books. He is thrilled by heroes, shields, swords and victories. Is it the same in reality?
Young Petros lives the war, occupation and resistance together with his parents, his sister, his gradfather and his turtle, Theodore. We follow him in his long walk with all the real adventures that take place between October 1940 and October 1944, when Greece was liberated.
Performances every Sunday at 10:30 starting on the 9th of October.
Premiere: Saturday 15th October at 18:00 in the presence of the author Alki Zei.
The performance on December 4th will be with English and Turkish surtitles.
