THE GOD OF STRANGERS

by Elena Carapetis

It’s 1947. Two women in Port Pirie greet unexpected guests at their doors. At one: a man looking for shelter, work and to leave his past behind him. At the other: a woman seeking someone she has lost, and something that was stolen from her.

It is said that if a stranger knocks on your door, you let them in – they could be a god in disguise. But, what do they bring in with them?

A family drama of epic proportions, in the spirit of Miller, Kazantzakis and Kambanellis, The Gods of Strangers promises to be an impassioned night of theatre.

Inspired by the oral histories of Greek, Cypriot and Italian migrants to regional South Australia, this historical fiction explores the untold struggles of belonging, identity and family in post World War II Australia.

The Gods of Strangers is a tri-lingual script. It is in English, with sections of the play in Greek and Italian with English translations. Productions will require English subtitles to be provided for audience members.
