The Youth Stage at the Greek National Theatre presents “Wild teen tales” based on the short stories by French educator and author Bernard Friot, directed by Maria Savvidou, from February 12 through to April 21.
Friot has written and translated more than 50 books for children and adults, many of which, have received major awards. Having worked for many years as a teacher, Friot has studied the way in which young people themselves narrate their stories. This particular perspective, the interplay between fantasy and reality, directly or indirectly inspires the way he writes, and he often uses stories told by children as material for his books.
Beranrd Friot has the rare gift of being able to touch on the biggest, most important and most sensitive of issues in a way that is light-hearted but takes them seriously. For all their boldness and humour, his stories negotiate a way through the everyday issues, relationships, discoveries, secrets and conflicts of adolescence with lightness and sensitivity.
