BROKEN GLASS / Greece
by Arthur Miller
September 10 @ 8:30 pm
At New York in 1938, Sylvia Gellburg suddenly becomes partially paralyzed from the waist down, after reading about the Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass) events in Nazi Germany in the newspaper. Could the reason of her paralysis be her relationship with her husband Philip? Her doctor, Harry Hyman, believes Sylvia’s paralysis is psychosomatic and begins treatment, going deep into the family secrets in order to cure her. His findings could be of help to us all.
Aspa Kalliani directs Broken Glass (1994), one of Miller’s most important and mature works. The author analyzes human relationships and displays everything that holds us back when we should in fact act. The fears and secrets that keep us immobile in a reality, a relationship, a job that does not suit us. We often do not react because we fear the unknown. However, our future is unknown, even if we stay put!
