under the stars
Thank you for joining us on 6th March 2019 in London and on 14th March in Amsterdam!
Lila Baklesi and Konstantinos Bibis filled us with a mixture of emotion in the ' Under the stars' play written by Tilemachos Tsardakas.
Prosopa Events and Alfa Idea presented the Greek theatre play
'Under the stars - Οι κάτω απ' τ' αστέρια' in London, and Amsterdam in March 2019 with Lila Baklesi and Konstantinos Bibis
Late 80s, early 90s. Small Greek town on an Aegean island. Menia and Nickolis go to the same school, spend their summer holidays together, dream together, make love, fall in love “for ever”. But years go by and – as it happens – reality prevails. Despite their choices, Menia and Nickolis still leave their mark on each other. Among them, there is a wild fire burning.
This is the final showdown of two lovers trapped by their choices.
This is their final meeting full of emotion, humour, conflict and nostalgia. A bittersweet story about great expectations and harsh reality, about leaving behind the sunny beaches and Greek summers of the age of innocence, about falling in love and growing up “under-the-stars”.
“In your eyes something dark was shining. But the butterflies in my stomach kept on tickling me. And, in these cases, butterflies never get it wrong”
