Line-up of plays
My Father My Son ( Drama)
“My Father My Son” is an autobiographical play about a young man growing up in Wellington in a strong traditional Greek community in the 1970s. It is about his struggle to break away from the tight limits and expectations that are placed on him to confirm to his Greek culture, that is to marry a young Greek girl, be the first person in his family to go to university and eventually to financially support the family and ensure that the culture survives for the next generation.
Inevitably, the young man Kiriakos fights against his strong willed father Andreas and mother Andigoni. He feels a much greater affinity with his Kiwi friends, especially the young girl he meets and falls in love with at Victoria University.
As the play progresses, so does the tension, with disastrous consequences.
