Papadiamantis – A play

Dear friends on “Eureka!”,

A couple of weeks ago a very well known Greek actor came to our school and performed some pieces from three of the best works of a very old and very famous Greek author, Alexandros Papadiamantis.

I’ve put together a slideshow presentation for you at this link—a-play and I hope you like it!

And now a few words about the performance.

The play was an old story about a girl and a prince. It took place at the sea on some big rocks. The prince went to war but before he left he told the girl that he would come back at Christmas to marry her. But the prince didn’t come back. Then the girl learned that he had gone to prison. She started crying and at night a green light shines at her house.

I feel unhappy because the girl and the prince didn’t get married. I also feel sad because the prince went to prison.
