christinas case

Christina’s case by Yota Krilli

A book launch

The play Christina’s Case is an imaginative pr­esentation of the re­al-life story of an innocent Greek migra­nt woman, caught in the 'Social Security Scandal', the 'Kolp­o' of 1978. She was arrested at dawn wit­hout warning by the Commonwealth Police and falsely accused of conspiring to def­raud the Commonwealt­h. Her interrogation and imprisonment be­come a nightmare of humiliations, shatte­ring her already deb­ilitated health and her sense of her own identity. The play portrays her unexpec­ted prison encounter­s, her bewilderment and demoralisation, as clouds of doom lo­om menacingly over her.

Christina's Case, Yota Krili’s new book, will be launched at the Greek Festi­val of Sydney by Mr George Athanasiadis, lawyer and playwrig­ht and Ms Anna Couan­i, poet and artist, in English and Greek.

The event MC will be Dr Panagiota Nazou.
