Greek-American Performing Artist Announces YouTube Premiere Event

November 17, 2020

NEW YORK – Complicit: Observations from the 57th Floor, written and performed by Greek-American Evangelia Costantakos Kingsley, directed by Mike Cutler, and with

Technical Director Miles Shebar, premieres on YouTube Saturday, November 21, 7:30-10 PM EST, with a Zoom talkback

Kingsley said via email, “On November 21, 2020 at 7:30 PM, I will be hosting an online event — a work-in-progress staged presentation of my latest one-person play called Complicit: Observations from the 57th Floor, featuring yours truly! 

“The piece is about one woman's journey through corporate America (particularly corporate law) as an actor/temp, and the events that lead to her departure from it. With every news cycle, it becomes clear how pertinent this piece is, from the Washington Post article about the Lincoln Project's investigation of the corporate behemoth Jones Day's involvement in the election litigations, to the news of the Justice Department's findings in the behavior of Acosta in the Jeffrey Epstein matter.

Kingsley said, “I received a grant from the Queens Council on the Arts to perform a live staged reading of the piece in 2020, but since the world turned upside down, I have turned the event digital.”
