The Greek (2009)

Welcome people to island village of Levendia! Times is hard, the mine is very closed and there are being plenty less fish in the sea. But is not all lost. For this village is having a unique claim to the fame.

The Greek takes a fresh look at Nikos Kazantzakis’ classic novel, Zorba the Greek, which recounts the friendship between studious young traveller Basil and the worldly, life-loving Alexis Zorba. Set in present-day Crete, it offers a rough guide to life and death for backpackers, bookworms and the bold.

The Greek was a large scale co-production with The Central School of Speech and Drama presented at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall in 2009.
