The Gods of Strangers

Date: 21 Jun 2020

It’s 1947. Two women in Port Pirie, South Australia greet unexpected guests at their doors.

At one – a man looking for shelter, work and to leave his past behind him. At the other, a woman seeking someone she has lost, and something that was stolen from her.

It is said that if a stranger knocks on your door, you let them in – they could be a god in disguise.

But, what do they bring in with them?

Written by Elena Carapetis and inspired by the oral histories of Greek, Cypriot and Italian migrants to regional South Australia, The Gods of Strangers explores the untold struggles of belonging, identity and family in post World War II Australia.

Eugenia Fragos, Deborah Galanos, Elizabeth Hay, Renato Musolino, Dina Panozzo and Philippos Ziakas feature in this 2018 STCSA production.
