From 15.02.2019 to 14.04.2019
An opportunity to think about the here and now in the here and now. To think about our hardships and our anxieties through the unmediated experience of them. To approach the present in the present tense. One-way ticket is an original musical for a generation that grew up believing that the world was their oyster but ended up at the mercy of a world they never made.
The production is written by Gerasimos Evangelatos, one of the most creative contemporary voices in Greece, and directed by the young and multitalented Minos Theocharis, working with the composer Themis Karamouratidis and a unique mixed company of actors and singers. The result is a production that takes us on a journey to real life: a destination that for many has no return journey.
Sunday morning, spring 2017, at Athens International Airport. Shortly after Brexit is triggered, with the fear of closed borders and a last chance for escape being snatched away, eight people are in a departure lounge, determined to leave Greece for an uncertain future in the UK. The flight is delayed and they all have plenty of time to get to know each other, sharing their stories, their fears and their insecurities, confessing their thoughts, reminiscing and re-examining their decision.
Young people, insecure, scared and angry, looking for a new business opportunity or simply struggling to survive. Each of them has a different story. What unites them is the hope of a better future and nostalgia for a lost dream.
