Let’s get rid of the plump people! – modern Greek comedy

Greek comedy


Andreas Efraimoglou, the Greek minister of foreign affairs isn’t really the nicest person in the world. In order to get where he is today, he has had to make a few deals in his time. He’s set his mind on winning the election after the next, and has two suitcases full of money to give to the right people to ‘ensure’ he wins it. He’s going to become party leader this time round, you see. He’s also obsessed with the latest health fads – the anti smoking campaign, and the anti obesity campaign. But it’s all going to come back to bite him….in a bad way, in the end.

This English version is a translation from a well staged Greek play.
