Konstantinou Paleologou 3, Athens


Theatre of the No, Athens newest English-speaking theatre, presents “The Last Lunch”, a musical tragicomedy, written by Yoel Wulfhart, directed by Manos Tsotras and music composed by Ian Blunsdon.

Opening for the first time outside America on Friday May 17th, for a limited run through, the production promises a blend of laughter, wit and wisdom.

A surreal, modernist farce, a menu of laughter and food for thought, that shines a light on the lives we hope and pretend to live. Set in a world where Jesus walks among us, teaching selfless love, while confronting human indifference and selfishness, the play delves into the complexities of existence with humor and insight.

At the “table” of The Last Lunch, Jesus arrives to save and elevate his people, but they baptize him in a mop bucket, are unable or unwilling to love, offer up prayers with selfish motives, and are obsessed with money, sex and personal success. As a result, He decides to spend his time playing Sudoku and avoiding talk of a “Second Coming”.

The play confronts this existential question head-on, challenging audiences to reconsider their perspectives on life, joy, and meaning.

Our menu promises an experience that serves more than just food. “You might notget what you want, but you won’t get what you expect either, and you definitely won’t think the same way again”
