Event Details

Greek Cultural Center presents "The Lady of Ro", a rare theatrical experience at Queens Theatre that casts a new light on a woman who became a Greek folk legend through hope, courage and exquisite tenderness. The Lady of Ro is an unforgettable show celebrating all that our shared humanity represents, a timeless story of women trying to find meaning in a world with little regard for, and even less knowledge of, what they've confronted.


The story is inspired by the life of Despina Achladioti, the Greek widow known as the Lady of Ro, after the deserted island where she took refuge during the two world wars. After the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, the Lady of Ro became a hero and folk legend. Told in mesmerizing prose, compassion and humor to spare, and infused with Fotini Baxevani's striking performance, The Lady of Ro is a transcendent performance that evokes a specific time and
place yet movingly describes the universal human condition.

The Lady of Ro will break and mend your heart.

The Lady of Ro opened in Athens to great acclaim in October 2017. The show was a prodigious hit in Athens and garnered an enthusiastic response from audiences on its two-year tour in Greece, Cyprus and Perth, Western Australia. It received invitations from leading international arts centers as the Center for the Art of Performance in Los Angeles (UCLA).

Performed in Greek with English supertitles
