“Foreigner”: Invisible Olga, Austras or Couch Grass
12 Nov 2013

NVISIBLE OLGA
A young immigrant woman becomes the victim of human trafficking and is trapped with no hope of escape from a system with no moral code. Based on a true story and personal accounts, Giannis Tsiros’s work has the power and immediacy of a documentary.
AUSTRAS or COUCH GRASS
A group of young friends invite a tourist in Greece to visit them at home, creating tension and bringing about unexpected consequences. Armed with a sharp wit and a bold ideological position, the writer makes a trenchant comment on the distortions and pathologies that afflict Greek society as a result of immigration.
Following its great success last year, “Foreigner” returns for a second season at the GNT, this time on the side of the Main Stage. The plays, commissioned by the GNT from two acclaimed Greek writers, explore various facets of the word “Foreigner” in today’s society, going beyond stereotype and prejudice. Brought to the stage by two young and talented directors and performed by a strong cast of four, this production was one of last season's most interesting theatrical surprises.
