CROSSROADS

by Nikos Bakolas

NATIONAL THEATRE OF NOTHERN GREECE

LAZARISTES MONASTERY - SOCRATIS KARANTINOS STAGE

Akis Dimou was commissioned by the NTNG to adapt “Crossroads”, a landmark in postwar Greek literature, for the stage. Nikos Bakolas wrote a novel whose action was centred on the city of Thessaloniki. The personal stories of its people intersect with History, while the city itself emerges out of the collective memory and the experiences of the characters; a city permanently beset by historical and political turmoil. A square that renders visible the actions of individuals.
 
“Crossroads” was honoured with the 1st State Prize for Fiction in 1988. Adapting such a complex text for the stage was a risk and a challenge for the NTNG and for Eleni Efthymiou, an extremely talented director of the new generation making her NTNG directorial debut.
