The Greek Visiting Mr. Green was an overwhelming success. It swept every category of the Time Out Athens Theatre Awards. It played for two full seasons in Athens and several months in Thessaloniki. Mr. Green was played by Giorgos Michalakopoulos, who also directed. Ross Gardiner was Gerasimos Skiadaresis.
When you arrived at the theatre, there was a saxophone player outside on the street playing. When the play began, the lights went down and that same sax player walked across the stage on the street above Mr. Green's basement apartment playing a mournful tune.
The Greek translation by Erricos Belies was recently published by Heridanos Publications. The title in Greece translates as "Every Thursday, Mr. Green".
12 years after his award-winning production of Κάθε Πέμπτη κύριε ΓκρηνVi ("Every Thursday, Mr. Green"), which ran for two seasons in Greece, Giorgos Michalakopoulos returns to Athens in October with a new production, co-starring Tasos Iordanidis. The design team from the original production reunites to re-conceive the play for a new production at the Anesis Theatre.
