A few words about the project

The one-act play “Adam’s Apple” is based on Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s iconic play “Freiheit in Bremen”. The serial killer Geshe Gottfried is transported from the early 19th century German countryside to the 21st century Greek capital.

Eri, with the help of her mother Eva, prepares for a bachelor party because the next day she marries Mr. Miltenberger, a wealthy old Swiss businessman who has decided to spend the last years of his life under the Mediterranean sun. As the preparations continue, the knife-edge dialogue between mother and daughter, marked by tension and irony, reveals the two women’s motivations for a seemingly practical marriage. Eva, a mature, charming and famous dancer, Eri, a young woman who goes unnoticed, former drug addict, unemployed, is crushed under the weight of the personality of her mother but also of her three spineless friends Artemis, Aphrodite and Melpos. Eri resists the oppressive urges of human civilization in an environment of fierce competition. Eri is a victim of same-sex violence and punishes not the male dynasties like Geshe, but her female dynasties at the level of symbolic, layered heroines who embody patriarchy.
