How deep is the human need for love, for closeness, for complete acceptance? Can two people with seemingly contrasting personalities find in each other the person they have been looking for in their whole life?

The actors Stelios Mainas and Katia Sperelaki answer these questions on stage, giving an outstanding performance.


A few words about the play

Barry, a military veteran who is now working as a bricklayer, is recovering after a knee surgery, when Louise suddenly shows up at his house. Properly mannered, truly professional and a poetry aficionado, she has been employed by the nephew of Barry’s ex-wife, in order to take care of Barry. Although she is chased away by his coarseness, the continuation of this encounter proves to be completely unexpected. Barry is determined to become a better man, while Louise desperately seeks help in him.

Two solitary people meet in an effort to bridge the gap between two completely different worlds and find salvation, each of them in their own way, the path they need to follow being long.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
