"Federico García Lorca succeeded in breathing new life into a familiar theme by deploying the full arsenal of the traditional farce, revealing the absurdity of human relationships, and the staggering vision of a truth that is not readily accessible to all" (excerpt from the introductory note by Nikos Gatsos to the Greek adaptation of the play by himself).

In celebration of the Spanish Presidency of the European Council of the European Union, ETHAL pays tribute to the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca.  Written at 1929, the play’s revival after more than two decades, is directed ETHAL’s Artistic Director Achilleas Grammatikopoulos.  Lorca’s inspiration is dead end love as well as unfulfilled love.  The story of Perlimplín and Belisa is a tender, yet painful story; a homage to love which balances between lyricism and the grotesque.

In the play, Don Perlimplín, an elderly man, leads a secluded life in his mansion, where his only companions are his books. His devoted housekeeper, Marcolfa, who looks after him, becomes increasingly concerned about his well-being when she passes away.  She encourages him to marry, hoping that a wife will bring him companionship and happiness, but Perlimplin adamantly refuses. However, when he hears Belisa singing, he surrenders unconditionally to her charm and asks her to be his wife. The time has come for him to experience the unpredictable nature of love and to pay its weighty price.
