The New Stage of THOC presents the play “The Sound of the Gun” by Loula Anagnostaki, directed by Adonis Florides.
Mihalis, a first year student at the industrial engineering department of the university, who is coming back from a provincial city, shares a flat with Fani, a young woman. Yannis, Fani’s younger brother, gets caught up in a strange case involving an illegal gun. On the eve of the 1985 national elections, Mihalis’ mother, Katia, comes to Athens in order to vote. She’s going to find out from an old friend, that Mihalis hasn’t been attending his university classes, that he’s preparing to go away from the United States and that Fani is pregnant. In an attempt to deal with the situation and the intention to change it, she comes face to face with her son, who says that he can kill himself using the illegal gun. Under the pressure of this threat, Katia falls dead.
