Straight after drama school I found myself in the wonderful process of rehearsals for a new play. One of my acting professors, Mr George Mouaimis was directing the latest work by Greek playwright Vasilis Katsikonouris, a comedy called”California Dreamin'” and I was cast as one of the female leads along with Simo Tsiakka, Giorgo Tsiakka and Dora Dimitro.
The play is about the lives of a group of after-teen individuals. Dinos, the leader of the gang, is trying to organize a robbery at his uncle Pepo’s house to get the necessary money to travel to California with his buddy and to avoid military service. Here are a series of failed robbery plans involving Ari’s girl, Gioulie, and Dino’s girlfriend, Kiki. Uncle Pepo seems to play a catalytic role in the lives of these youngesters, because every encounter with him is a surprise for them.
