Join us at Mary Coustas' acclaimed one woman show
Where: Playbox Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne
When: Sunday 2 July 2.00 pm
This Is Personal is a candid and intimate one-woman show that combines the coarse tapestry of Coustas’ migrant upbringing in Melbourne’s suburbs and her recent experience of motherhood. Mary addresses questions from her inquisitive daughter, her answers forcing her to reflect on what she can offer from her own life experience… and more importantly what she can’t. The audience meets the hilarious characters from Mary’s family who have shaped her life – including Mary’s younger self who created the suit of armour we’ve come to know as ‘Effie’ This Is Personal is an unforgettable, powerful and kaleidoscopic exploration of love, loss, laughter and fear, and how all four come to define us.
The film was inspired by Lucy’s great aunt, the late Katina Kostos, a formative figure for Lucy whilst growing up. Lucy travelled to Ithaca, Katina’s birthplace, to trace her story. Through the exploration of Katina’s life Lucy learnt about the descendants of the Kostopoulos and Varvarigos families and their stories of war, loss, migration, and longing.
All monies will support the Ithaki Archive in memory of Katina Kostos who was a
founding member of the Ithacan Historical Society.
