ASTORIA – The Greek Cultural Center, 26-80 30th Street #2B in Astoria, presents the play ‘The Homelands of the Innocent’ (‘Athoon Patrides’) by Anastasia Thanasoula, directed by Theodoros Petropoulos, February 24-March 12. The theatrical performance is in Greek with English supertitles and stars Petropoulos, Diodoros Pagoudis, and Thanasoula.

Dinos, the protagonist of the play, is born at the end of the 19th century. The great and important events of world history mark his life- the First World War, the Asia Minor Catastrophe, and the dream of America being crushed by the financial crash of 1929.
