“The Suitcase: Losing Famagusta” - A Poignant One-Woman Show

We are proud to co-sponsor “The Suitcase: Losing Famagusta”, a moving one-woman play written and performed by Lorna Eleonora Vassiliades, and directed by Pedro Pérez Rothstein.

This tender and reminiscent performance explores the profound loss experienced by the UK-born Lorna, who became a child refugee following the 1974 Turkish invasion in Cyprus. The play navigates her journey from a bullied child in Essex to finding belonging in Famagusta, only to lose everything during the war.

The Suitcase is part of the Camden Fringe Festival and will be performed at Theatro Technis on August 13th, 14th, and 15th at 7:30 p.m. Supported by the Cyprus High Commission in London and the Queen Mary University of London, the production resonates with themes of identity, memory, and the universal need for belonging.

Do not miss the Q&A session with Lorna and Pedro on August 14th, presented by LGR and the Hellenic TV journalist Vasoula Christodoulou. Additionally, Lorna’s personal archive will be on display in the Theatro Technis foyer, providing a heartbreaking glimpse into her family's story.
