Theatro Technis announces 2015 Season
The Theatro Technis, a fringe theatre in Camden, north London, have announced a short season of plays at the venue which are running for the first two months of 2015.
They will begin the year with a revival of their previous production of We, MacBeth written by James Hepurn and directed by George Eugeniou.
This production will play in rep alongside Castro of Mediterranean, which is written and directed by George Eugeniou. The two plays will run on alternative nights from 13 to 31 January 2015.
We, MacBeth is set in November 1963 shortly after sinister elements of the U.S. Government assassinated President Kennedy in broad daylight in Dallas. The men who accomplished this brazen hit never relinquished the power they gained from it. In this play these men explain their motives and aspirations and defend their values against a Rooseveltian "Ami du Peuple," who resists their corporate power and pleads for the dignity and responsibility of the Common Man.
Castro of Mediterranean follows Archbishop Makarios who became the first President of the Republic of Cyprus and soon was a target of US- CIA on the allegation that he was pro-Soviet. Since there is no at present an International Criminal Court of Justice to bring the predators under the rule of law, the play creates an imaginary trial to advocate for the need of such a court as no one, whether individual or state, who has committed a crime against humanity, should be 'untouchable' as is the case of Turkey and its patrons, US, Britain and NATO.
This will be then followed by The Orchard House by John-Paul Brennan which runs from 3 to 14 February 2015. Directed once again by George Eugeniou, this play is about the shocking abuse of children in Children's Homes in Britain in 1970s and 80s.
