Petros’ War / Ο μεγάλος περίπατος του Πέτρου (1971)

Petros’s War

by Alki Zei

KATINA PAXINOU CHILDREN’S THEATRE

On 28 October 1940, war breaks out in Greece, turning the life of nine-year-old Petros upside-down. In the midst of this new and dangerous situation, the young boy sets off on a long walk full of adventure and excitement, through which he will learn to love his country above all else. Liberation from the Germans four years later finds him playing in the streets, “a man, now, 13 years old!” Alki Zei’s unique storytelling powers combine the drama and suspense of war with a child’s eye view, making Petros’s War one of the most genuine and best-loved tales about this period of Greek history. This stage adaptation is directed by Takis Tzamargias, renowned for his long experience in education, and vividly brings to life the characters and ideas of one of Greece’s greatest writers.
