The passion's labyrinth

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou




Outside the traditional cafeteria. Full shot.
Marina

To Athanasia. Don’t believe in only what you see, my daughter.

Athanasia

I’ll go to the Gallery myself.

John

Today you shouldn’t.

Athanasia

Is it because it’s a symbolic day?

John

Today the Gate of time is open. Time. And there’s only one exit.

Marina

John is right, my dear Athanasia.

Athanasia

I have to go.

John

You might get lost in the passion’s labyrinth…

Irene

Since she wants it. No one can stop her.

Aris

The Gallery is closed today.

Athanasia

I’ll find a way. She’s leaving.

Irene

Wait! I’ll accompany you to the Gallery. They are leaving together.

Aris

The guard will not let her enter.

John

To Marina. If it’s the ripe time for her…
In Elefteria’s room.

Eleftheria

It has been days you are missing. Time. Where have you been, my child?

Fotis

I had to say goodbye to an old friend…

Angel

Here their tattletales were looking for you…

Elefteria

I sent Angel to light a candle to Holy Mary Finikiotissa.

Fotis

But why, mother? It was dangerous.

Eleftheria

It’s only her that can protect you. I didn’t know where you were.
Fotis

I was here as well but not now.

Elefteria

She understands everything. And she brought you to me again. Come here to kiss you.
Fotis stoops above her bed and she kisses his forehead. Now, I’m not afraid any longer. Time. I may leave now. She closes her eyes.

Fotis

No! She opens her eyes again. You shouldn’t die now.
In front of the Gallery. Full shot.

Irene

Aris was right. It’s closed…

Athanasia

If Fotis found a way, we will find one too.

Irene

Are you determined?

Athanasia

I can’t stand this situation any longer.

Irene

But Fotis has done nothing wrong.

Athanasia

I wish he had. I could forgive him easier in this way. She is knocking the door. No one answers. She is knocking again.
Pretend that you’ve hurt your leg. Irene is falling down holding her leg. She is knocking again.

Irene

You’ll wake up the entire neighborhood!

Athanasia

That’s what I want! She’s knocking again. Athanasia is showing Irene’s leg. The guard opens the door and goes to Irene to help her. When he turns to see where Athanasia is, she is already gone. John and Mary are walking on a street.

John

We are all alone again.

Marina

Now I know how you feel. Time. Do you miss him?

John

Now that I met Fotis…

Marina

Not any longer…

John

I didn’t know how to say it.

Marina

I feel the same thing. Time. With Fotis death gains another sense.

John

Memory links us with the past and the future.

Marina

I’ll never forget how Peter felt when he met him.

John

Neither how Eleftheria felt.

Marina

It was like they saw our son. Silence. Do you know where he is now?

John

He is close to us. In the depths of history.

Marina

How about Athanasia?

John

Smiling. She’s still young. She doesn’t know yet, even though she loves him.

Marina

Even though he loves her, he already knows…

John

I hope everything will go just fine at the Gallery.

Marina

Do you think that there’s danger there?

John

Yes, there is… But, Fotis is there too…
