Online Screening: The Cloakroom Attendant

Wednesday 27 May 2020 – Thursday 04 Jun 2020

Performed at The Hellenic Centre last year in Greek watch the English performance online until Thursday 4 June.


Margot, the cloakroom attendant of a national museum, entertains the audience with her daily stories while weighing the challenges of a serious relationship and of the unavoidable dilemma: ‘to be or not to be a parent?’ With wit and sensitivity, artefacts become alive and visitors take mythical dimensions. Dante’s condemned lovers, an unfortunate French queen and an inquisitive boy help Margot balance on a suspended world of imagination, aspirations and self-fulfilment.
