Sunset at the Villa Thalia

Sunset at the Villa Thalia

by Alexei Kaye Campbell

A funny and passionate play from the author of The Pride and The Faith Machine.

April 1967. Greece is in political turmoil. Charlotte and Theo have retreated to a small island in search of peace and inspiration. But when they meet a charismatic American couple at the port they are seduced into making choices with devastating consequences.

Sunset at the Villa Thalia spans a decade as it explores the impact of foreign influence, planned and unintentional, on a nation and its people.

Premiered at the National Theatre, London, in 2016, in a production directed by Simon Godwin.
