Late Night, a Greek play

Thanasis Gavos   Wednesday, 15 - Saturday, 18 June 2016; 7:45pm
Greek theatre, LIFT Festival, The Pit Barbican,


What do you do at night when your country is crumbling by day? Well there’s music, singing, a drink, some tricks to pass the time and always the same absurd sense of waiting.

Set among the debris of a dilapidated ballroom and with the otherworldly feel of a David Lynch film, this poetic and emotive piece unfolds to a nostalgic soundtrack, speaking of a Europe in ruins.

There will be a post-show talk on Thursday 16 June. Free with a ticket to that evening’s performance.
