Z by Vassilis Vassilikos at the National Theatre of Greece


Z by Vassilis Vassilikos, the new production of the National Theatre of Greece, will be performed at Ziller Building – Nikos Kourkoulos New Stage from December 20, 2012 until February 24, 2013.

Z, a fictionalised account of the assassination of Greek MP Grigoris Lambrakis, was first published in 1966. With a mixture of journalistic accuracy and literary storytelling, internationally award-wining writer Vassilis Vassilikos records the crucial events from the arrival of Lambrakis in Thessaloniki through to the judicial inquiry into his killing and its first findings. Adopting a variety of narrative techniques, the writer highlights both the human and the political dimension of the events, focusing on individuals and situations that have played a defining role in the creation of present-day Greece.

This ‘explosive’ material has been adapted for the stage by Efi Theodorou, who also directs. Her production employs a cast of experienced actors to examine the interior life of the characters and in particular the ideological stance of an individual who envisioned a peaceful and just world and did not back down in the face of danger and threats.
