A number of theatrical performances continue their run in Nicosia this week, giving you time to grab a show.
For those who have not yet seen O Karagkiozis by author, actress and director Lena Kitsopoulou, the ARTos foundation offers a journey back into childhood until April 22.
Actor Herodotos Miltiadous takes the lead, moving from childhood to fatherhood, when he can now see the wounds he has been carrying around since he was a child.
O Karagkiozis will move almost anyone with its heart-breaking writing and strong ties to our past, on which our personalities are based.
From a look into childhood to the look inside the world of a serial killer, Theatro Ena continues to give audiences a thrilling chill with the play Myra, based on Myra Hindley, who was involved in the Moors Murders in England.
The play by Michalis Papadopoulos takes a close look at the woman who paired up with Ian Brady to murder five children in the 1960s. The two lovers went on a murdering spree until Hindley’s brother-in-law tipped off police and she and Brady were arrested. She was found guilty of three murders and was put in prison for life, where she died in 2002.
A lighter performance is that of Miss Julie, being staged at Polhihors Estia.
Miss Julie by August Strindberg is set on a midsummer’s eve on the estate of a Count (Miss Julie’s father) in Sweden. Julie is drawn to Jean, a senior servant who is engaged. The two fall in love and battle things out until Jean convinces Miss Julie to take extreme measures to escape the situation they both find themselves in.
