It’s All

A Spectrum


Various Playwrights

It’s All A Spectrum: A collection of one-act plays (2017)

Welcome to the Spectrum! A place where Life and Death enjoy playing chess, love is at crisis, addictions and madness take hold of the human body and mind, and shadows try to devour our true selves. But hope is 
also there, a flicker of light in the dusty corners of the stage. Will it finally come out?
After last year's performance of Our Town by Thorton Wilder, the English Department Drama Club brings to you It's All a Spectrum, a collection of one-act plays that explores themes such as love, death, desire, madness and sexual repression. Love and death might seem antithetical but there are moments when they are almost entwined, and this play is one of these moments.
We invite you to join us in our fragmented journey in the realm of love and death, and then maybe you will find your own place in the Spectrum.

Οne act plays:

In a library book club, five girls talk about the plays they read for the week. In the process, they learn about the many aspects of life, each other and, most importantly, themselves. The plays they talk about are the following:


The Game (1916) by Louise Bryant:
Life and Death participate in what for them is a game of chess, but for two humans, it is what will determine their fate.

Directed by Βικτωρία Ναύτη (Victoria Nafti)

Cocaine (1921) by Pendleton King:
A prostitute and her boyfriend, who is an ex-boxer, struggle with poverty 
and drug addiction.

Directed by Γιώργος Χαλκιάς (Giorgos Chalkias)

Enemies (1921) by Neith Boyce & Hutchins Hapgood:
A rather normal quarrel between a middle-class married couple becomes the chance for them to reveal suppressed emotions and thoughts.
Directed by Γιώργος Δροσόπουλος (Giorgos Drosopoulos)

Overtones (1916) by Alice Gerstenberg:
Two women with connected pasts but different motives discuss over tea. Their superficiality is disturbed by their Inner Selves.
