    “The Ionian Theater,” faithful to its rendezvous with its friends, honors its birthplace, Corfu, by commencing its performances with the new, original comedy by Petros Augerinos.

    “WOMEN: The Story of a Statue When It Falls Off Its Pedestal or When the Donkey’s Tail Doesn’t Wag.”

    This is the story of two sisters, Penelope and her elder sister (both victims of severe domestic violence due to the desires of an authoritarian and violent father) who reunite after years, having walked entirely different paths, in an attempt to heal their wounds and scars. However, today, on the day of the unveiling of their father’s statue, who, among other things, served as the mayor for two terms, everything will be turned upside down.

    Quoting from the director’s note:

    “In an old middle-class house with family photos framed, now covered due to mourning, and around a table that used to be the ‘hearth,’ the story of two sisters unfolds in a disarmingly light and subtle way. Women, now mature and victims of domestic violence, who have followed opposite paths, meet again, accepting each other with self-irony and humor to admit their common purpose: vindication. It’s the day of the statue unveiling of their father’s general. It’s the moment when the town ‘invades’ their small apartment with comedic-tragic results. To piece together the puzzle of their ambitions and hidden desires, to uncover the deviation, hatred, hidden self, hypocrisy, and madness of an entire town and the apathy of a society in decay and confusion.”

    The story is presented in a “sideways” manner, and perhaps never “openly.” Nevertheless, the question remains. What does it mean to be a “woman”? What is her place in the contemporary world? What are the “boundaries” within which she operates? Who defines them? And how does a woman in our times “topple the rocks and tame the waves”?
