How has the state of the economy affected the love lives of the people of Athens? Where does love find refuge in the city? Might there be an ideal couple amidst the crisis? As they tell their stories, the characters in this episodic spectacle cast out misery and look on the bright side of life.
Taking the form of an Athenian revue, the production forms a mosaic of modern Athens. Sketches and songs are linked by the common theme of love, with satire as a means of negotiating our place in today’s society of values and the role of love in our lives.
