The new house

For the first time, the National Theatre of Greece is staging Carlo Goldoni’s timeless and highly topical comedy, The new house.

The innovative Italian playwright’s main themes are the pre-eminence of money, middle-class anxiety, and the pitfalls of keeping up appearances. As the director, Giannis Skourletis, notes: “This dream house is made to be lived in, but the trumping of the collective good by selfishness means that it will never be inhabited. Goldoni’s characters, narcissists and hypocrites to the end, are made to wander like dispossessed shadows in this most tragic comedy of loneliness.”

Newlyweds Anzoletto and Cecilia are preparing to move into the marital home. Cecilia is fussy, and loves luxury and elegance, while the penniless Anzoletto, who is madly in love with her, cannot keep up with her demands. As he runs himself ragged, the vital issues at the heart of the play are revealed.

English surtitles: Every Thursday & Saturday.
