One of the most special and interesting works of Bernard Marie Coltes chose to present the Jenny Karezi Theater, directed by Alexandros Sotiriou. This is the work “Race of Negroes and Dogs” which, written in 1979, is a very lively and timely text that skillfully addresses the fears, illusions, hopes and greed of man, passions capable of putting him out of bounds, morality but also out of happiness.
A few words about the project
In a West African country, Albury, a black man, invades an enclosed and well-guarded French construction site to retrieve the dead body of his brother, who was killed in a work accident.
There he meets three whites who live inside the construction site, Orne, the site manager, Cal, a young French engineer, and Leoni, a woman in fragile health, whom Orne brought with him from Paris to marry her.
The two white men, under various pretexts, refuse to hand over the body to his brother. Albury then tells them that he is not going to leave their place until they give him the body to bury. Albury’s stance will lead to a confrontation with Orn and Cal at the extremes and will bring to the surface the cover-up of the murder, Albury’s brother Nuofia, as well as a corruption scandal, to the detriment of the villagers near the construction site. , which the French construction company wants to keep well hidden.
In his fight for justice, Albury will find an unexpected ally, Leoni. The events of the play take place overnight, from dusk to dawn the next day.

The “standing comedian” Christoforos Zaralikos meets for the second time the “caustic” pen of Pitsirikos and they present us at the “Jenny Karezi” Theater from Thursday, October 14 and every Thursday the new Stand Up Comedy show “200 Years on Loan”
Pitsirikos and Christoforos Zaralikos could not but give a patriotic presence in the celebrations for the two hundred years since the founding of the Greek state and decided to write the play entitled “1821-2021, Two Hundred Years on Loan”.
By setting the bar high, they aspire to offer more laughter than official state events, almost impossible according to expert celebrities. In the unpredictable and provocative Stand Up Comedy show there will be – as always – social and political satire, guaranteed fun, crazy mood and subversive humor without also missing the self-sarcasm and appropriate comments for everyone and everything!
Participating in the show: members of the Committee “Greece 2021”
