Trianon - Actually they call me Thanassis, 26 April to 8 June 2024

Trianon Nafplio, Τριανόν Ναυπλίου

The comic journey into nostalgia and dreams begins! Premiere in Nafplio, Friday, April 26th 2024, at the Trianon Theatre. "Actually, they call me Thanassis", by George Armenis. Directed by Anna Fonsou.

"If you want to give me courage... clap for me... Thank you...
The play you are about to see is my life... A life of laughter, of tears... of agony, of dreams, of trying to change it. But it seems that this was meant to be my life. So here goes... Actually, they call me Thanassis..."
With intense self-sarcasm, Thanasis writes a play about his life. Romantic and idealistic, he struggles to remain authentic in a chaotic world where relationships are alienated and values give way to self-interest and financial transactions. In this cruel world, Thanasis builds, tears down and rebuilds... family, friendship and love.
A bittersweet comedy by Giorgos Armenis that sketches all aspects of modern Greek social reality and deals with what hurts us, with a sense of humor...

The performance is under the auspices of the University of Peloponnese - School of Fine Arts TTHS, SAEK Nafplion, The Actor's House Foundation, The Nafplion Association. With the kind support of the Municipality of Nafplio.
