The Sound of the Gun

A Piece for Six Performers

Mihalis, a first year student at the Industrial engineering department of the university, who is coming from a provincial town, shares an apartment with Fani, a young woman. Yannis, Fani’s younger brother, gets caught up in a strange case involving an illegal gun. On the eve of the 1985 national elections, Mihalis’ mother, Katia, comes to Athens in order to vote. She will find out from an old friend, that Mihalis hasn’t been attending his university classes, that he is preparing to leave for the United States and that Fani is pregnant. In an effort to deal with the situation and the intention to alter it, she comes face to face with her son, who says that he will kill himself using the illegal gun. Under the pressure of this threat, Katia falls dead.
