By Alex Lycos. Director: Michael Block. The Factory Theatre (NSW). August 11 to 21, 2011.
200 Greeks and 200 Lebanese walk into a theatre, what happens?
Two hours of riotous laughter provoked by the outrageous squabbles and self-righteous posturing of the Karrastopoulos and El Masri families.
The divide for this modern day love struck Romeo and Juliet is their Greek and Lebanese roots and all the baggage their heritage and their families constantly drag into their lives, now more complicated by a baby! But in the end loves conquers all, including disputes about whether the Greeks or Arabs created Baklava.
