"Raus! Get Outta Here!" (Press Release)

Following the hilarious smash hit comedy "The In-laws from Tirana" with sold out performances in Greece and the US the successful writing duo, M. Reppas and I. Papathanasiou, strikes again with an even funnier new comedy called "Raus! Get outta here!", satirizing and sarcastically criticizing Greece's social and financial corruption.

This new boisterous comedy was played for two consecutive years in Athens, Greece with sellout success. This fall, from November 1, 2013 to November 30, 2013, Eclipses Group Theater NY presents the US premier of "Raus! Get outta here!" at the Stathakeion Cultural Center, 22-51 29th St. in Astoria, with a cast of stellar professional actors. The direction is once again signed by Ioanna Katsarou, the director of last year's sold out success "The In-laws from Tirana". The play will be performed in Greek with English supertitles.
A few words about the play
An unexpected heritage brings together six wildly different characters; an Official of the Ministry of Transportation, his wife - a Pharmacist, a Nurse, two Prostitutes and their flamboyant brothel Assistant. They all conspire in getting a Grant from the European Union with establishing a fake cultural organization. But what happens when a German commissioner suddenly shows up to check on their legitimacy? ... and ... what happens when an unexpected visitor threatens them with revealing their sham?
