Hellenic Art Theatre: World Premier with “Pelagia’s Ghost”
On Friday 6thSept Hellenic Art Theatre, under the direction of Stavros Economidis will be premiering the comedy, Pelagia’s Ghost by Veatriki Mouka-Koch. Performances will continue until the 29thSeptember.
Ms Mouka-Koch, now living in Epirus, wrote the play whilst on a six-year post at the Greek Embassy in Canberra.
Pelagia’s Ghost is a witty play that will leave the audience laughing, intrigued and guessing.
Shocked upon discovering that her substantial nest egg is missing, Pelagia has a stroke and dies. Saint Peter gives her a 3 day pass to go back and find out where her money is and who stole it! What she sees upon her return will shock her.
Will Pelagia find her money and the culprit – so she can finally Rest in Peace?
Featuring a cast of experienced actors, many that have entertained you for decades along with new talent – Chris Messaris, Dennis Messaris, Evelyn Tsavalas, Zois Patelis, John Daviskas, Michael Kazonis, Mimika Valaris & Nita Marinakis and our dearest Melpo Papadopoulou as the Ghost!
