Event Details

Alpha Square presents "Sight Unseen", a play by Donald Margulies directed by Varnavas Kyriazis. Jonathan Waxman is a Brooklyn Jew who has become a very wealthy, critically acclaimed artist--his art works are bought "sight unseen". Happily married, with a pregnant wife, he travels to London for a retrospective of his work. While there, he impulsively decides to journey to the countryside to visit his former model and lover Patricia in the Norfolk farmhouse where she lives and works with her archeologist husband Nick, who is English. She had married this slightly older man in order to remain in England when her student visa expired. Jonathan, whose father has recently died, is struggling with self-doubt and seeking to regain his artistic inspiration. While in England, He meets Grete, a young German scholar-journalist. The play unfolds in a non-linear progression, with forward and backward jumps in time that eventually lead to the beginning of the relationship between Patricia and Jonathan, which ended without satisfactory closure. The play is in Greek. On Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays Time: 20:30 except Sunday :18:30. Cost: €15 / €12
