National Theatre Of Greece: My Mother's Sin (In English)
The National Theatre of Greece presents a masterpiece of Greek Literature entitled “My mother’s sin” by Georgios Vizyenos, adapted as theatrical play and performed in English. It is presented as part of the new initiative by the Greek Ministry of Culture “All of Greece, one Culture”, in a number of awe-inspiring ancient theatres as well as impressive archaeological sites in Attica and Peloponnese (Eleusina, Salamina, Nafplio, Epidaurus, and Mycenae).

Georgios Vizyenos’ short story My Mother’s Sin (1883) is presented in English in order to bring this masterpiece of modern Greek literature to a wider audience. Vizyenos’ material draws on personal and family memories, and the traditions and experiences of ordinary life in Eastern Thrace, interpreting them through the prism of his own intellect and education.

The performance has been hosted with great success in leading academic institutions in the United States (Harvard University, Yale University, New Haven, Columbia University, New York, Tampa, and the University of Illinois at Chicago) over the last two years (2018-2019).

The events are offered free of charge by the Ministry of Culture and Sports. The only admission fee is the cost of the ticket to enter each site. Booking is mandatory and will be through the Digital Culture platform.
