ESME1.jpg

In a village of the Kalavryta district, near the Monastery of Agia Lavra, on the cusp of the 1821 Greek Revolution, two youths, Drosos and Esmé, take an oath of love. Their ancestry undermines their oath: Drosos is Greek and Esmé is Turkish. Their love, faced with strong resistance from their families, will be put to the test.

This dramatic idyll by Spyros Peresiades, the playwright of the renowned Golfo, crafted in the demotic language across fifteen-syllable verses, brings out the power of true love that stands tall in the face of all the hurdles.

Marina Vronti and her associates put on view the emotion, sense of humour and idiomorphic poetic language of a play identified with the Greek tradition in this contemporary revival of a story that relays the timeless message of love.

The production, linked to the 200th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence, will tour Cyprus during the summer. It has also been invited to a staging in Athens in the context of the Athens-Epidaurus Festival, on the 23 and 24 of July 2021.
