"The Estate", a play that presents the history of Aitoloakarnania

Εντυπωσιακό ήταν το έργο της Μαίρης Χρυσικοπούλου «Το Κτήμα» που παρουσιάστηκε στο πλαίσιο του 1ου Φεστιβάλ Ερασιτεχνικού Θεάτρου του ΔΗΠΕΘΕ Αγρινίου.

The theatrical play composes true events that took place in the area of ​​Aitoloakarnania from the time of liberation to the present day.

Connective tissue is an estate in the area of ​​Mourstianos (today's Lysimachia) and after the liberation by the Turks, the State was given to the chieftain Georgios Valtinos as a reward for his contribution to the struggle.

His son, a politician and a prodigal, ate all his father's property and eventually the bank auctioned everything that was left.

The Plataniotis brothers, from Platano Nafpaktia, who grew up in Romania and Russia on the eve of the October Revolution, fearing not to lose their property, come to Greece and buy the estate. In fact, they bring service staff from Russia. Of the three brothers, only George is married to Irina, a Russian of Greek descent, and they have a young son, Leonidas, who suddenly dies from pneumonia.

Then the three Platanioti brothers die and Irina lives alone. Then comes the only co-heir, Italian Luciano Vernazza, son of her brother-in-law, and a consul is placed in Messolonghi and a new plot is created.

In the end, the largest part of the estate is transferred to the inhabitants of the area, having written to its extent historical memories, social changes, human pains and a lot of emotion.

The actors who portrayed the characters of Mary Chrysikopoulou's work were all amateurs but they earned the applause for their performance.
