UCLA will host the world premiere of the theatrical production Makriyannis Unplugged, a work created and directed by the award-winning actor and director Yorgos Karamihos. Makriyannis Unplugged adapts selected passages from the memoirs of General Makriyannis, in order to provide an artistic rendering of major events from the history of the Greek nation in the last two centuries. Two performances –the first in Greek and the second in English– will take place. The production will then travel to Canada, Greece, and Europe.
