Sons and Daughters
Sons and Daughters is social project which is based on real interviews from people who are asked to tell a story that sealed their life. Their stories are associated with important historical events from modern Greek history, but above all describe the constant search of everyday peoples happiness, beyond the major political and social changes in the recent history of the Greek State.

Ten true stories which deal with Migration, World War II, the Occupation, the Civil War, the massive earthquake in Kefalonia in 1953, the construction of the Berlin Wall, the Junta and Greece in the years of the restoration of democracy. The production is enriched with real life stories of member  of the Greek-American community in New York.

In the play, four actors and a violin, compose familiar melodies and revive nostalgic images from the lives of previous generations. Through this musical and theatrical journey, the time intervals between generations and desires, struggles and passions of characters coincide with our search for happiness and prosperity.
