Due to popular demand Maria Karolidou’s adaptation of Seawall will now be on at Theatro Aigaia in Nicosia for three more days in April.

Seawall is a play by British playwright Simon Stephens and Theatre Ensemble’s Greek-language adaptation is the first production of the play in Cyprus. He is one of the most well-known contemporary British playwrights, who found fame after his very successful theatrical adaptation of Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. His writing is widely performed throughout Europe and on April 3, 4 and 5, three extra performances of Seawall will take place in Agioi Omologites, Nicosia.

The play attempts an honest, unabashed and captivating exploration on the subject of human loss from the perspective of a father and husband. The narration highlights with exceptional sensitivity, insight and humour the challenges and joy of fatherhood, while at the same time reflecting on the issues of birth, death, love, absence, fear, pain, the question of the Divine and everything related to what is called the ‘human condition’. It is particularly important that the story is told by a man who undertakes a journey into human weakness and fragility.
