The great playwright Loula Anagnostakis, 83, passed away on Sunday. Her state funeral is scheduled for today, 4 pm, at the Athens First Cemetery.
Loula Anagnostakis, younger sister of the poet Manolis Anagnostakis, was born in Thessaloniki in the 1930s. She studied at and graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s Law School, and made her debut as a playwright in 1965, with the City Trilogy (“The overnight stop”, “The City”, “The Parade”), presented by Karolos Koun as a single performance at the Art Theater.
Loula Anagnostakis’s works have been presented by Athenian theater groups and Municipal Regional Theaters, as well as by theater groups abroad (France, Italy, England, Germany, Cyprus, Spain, USA).
A unique voice, Loula Anagnostakis’s works depict the modern Greek’s inner landscape, as it was altered under the influence of History. In her work, she dealt with the most important issues of post-war Greece, such as trauma, guilt, loneliness, defeat.
