PRAXIS PRESENTS “On the 10th of June”

‘On the 10th of June’, a modern Greek play by George Iliopoulos, will run at the Simpkins Lee Theatre of Lady Margaret Hall College on the 22nd and 23rd of May. Performed in Greek with English surtitles, the play will be directed by Anastasia Revi.
Based on true facts, the play is the story of Distomo, a story about life violently been disrupted by the ferocity of war. A story about the brutality mankind can inflict upon itself. Distomo was not the only, nor the last place on earth where people forgot what it means to be human. The 10th of June 1944 is a dark point in history that should not be forgotten and should not be repeated. People of Distomo make a plea that needs to be heard: ‘never again war!’
‘On the 10th of June’ is a brand-new work by Iliopoulos, firstly performed in Rhodes in October 2018. PRAXIS, under Anastasia’s direction, are translating ‘On the 10th of June’ and presenting it for the very first time in UK.
Praxis (in Greek ‘Πράξις’, meaning ‘The Act’) the Oxford University Greek Society theatre team, was established in 2013, with a vision to introduce contemporary Greek plays performed in their original language to an English-speaking audience.
