Strange, strange encounters on the beach. “There is, in this strange and beautiful play, a moment when the author crosses the boundaries of naturalism and the seaside sands of Salonika are literally parted and the dead past rises to life”.
The guardian Charlotte and her daughter Enid come to Greece, to Salonika, searching for the grave of their husband and father, Ben, killed in action so long ago. As they emerge on to the beach, at waters’ edge lies a bronzed, naked youth – alive or dead? Sleeping or awake? Apollo fallen from the azure skies or washed ashore from Homer’s wine-dark sea? There are no footprints in the sand.
Mysterious, beautiful, lyrical, often hilarious and mocking, SALONIKA is always involving and thoroughly compelling.
Raymond Omodei first directed this play at the Hole in the Wall Theatre in Subiaco in 1985.
Now it is the Garrick Theatre audience’s turn to enjoy this fascinating work.
