Event description

Description

The 10th of June was a sunny, summer day like any other. People would wake up as usual, look after their fields and animals, go to church. Children would go to school, young people would laugh, dream, fall in love, as usual… The 10th of June, seemed to be an ordinary summer day. Only it wasn’t.

Based on true facts, this is the story of Distomo, a story about life violently been disrupted by the ferocity of war. A story about the brutality mankind can inflict upon itself. Distomo was not the only, nor the last place on earth where people forgot what it means to be human. The 10th of June 1944 is a dark point in history that should not be forgotten and should not be repeated. People of Distomo make a plea that needs to be heard: ‘never again war!’

PRAXIS and our director, Anastasia Revi, bring 'On the 10th of June' into life, and as ever, are proud to present yet another piece from the Greek contemporary theatre scene to the Oxford audience.

Note that Wednesday's performance will be followed by a Q&A session with the playwright George Iliopoulos.

The performance will be in Greek with English subtitles.
