About the plays:
 
1. The Threat, by Artemis Moustaklidou
A married couple living isolated in its apartment is terrified when an immigrant family moves in next door. As husband and wife lock themselves in the apartment, time passes, their supplies dwindle, and their paranoia increases.
 
2. Lebensraum, by Thanasis Triaridis
A two-person, modern-day theatrical experiment that poses questions regarding the Nazi theory of Lebensraum—the vital space—takes an unexpected and dangerous turn.
 
3. Babies Are Delivered by the Stork, by Michalis Reppas – Thanasis Papathanasiou.
Thessaloniki, 1943. A young Jew runs away from the Dachau death trains and returns home to hide. But in his supposedly empty house (following the persecution of Thessaloniki’s Jews) now live two Greek couples, whose homes have been bombarded. The Greeks will hide the Jew, but the Germans and their Greek friends are out for blood.
