Katerina Bakolias: My Grandfather's True Stories

Through the National Theatre School’s Art Apart program former Talent Trust recipient, Katerina Bakolis, has a new project being released on Thursday, May 28, 2020.

About the project:
‘My Grandfather’s True Stories,’ is a radio play by Katerina Bakolias which will be released on May 28th. The play runs 30 minutes in length. 
Its purpose is as a tribute to her grandfather, Alexander ‘Alec’ Gillis, a fantastic storyteller and constant source of artistic support. Katerina hopes that these stories will fascinate listeners, both young and old, and evoke pleasant memories of bedtime stories. “My grandfather paints a perfect picture with his words and from the time I was able to understand him he told me stories. Funny stories, ghost stories, and stories that he promised were true. I’ve selected three of my favourites and retold them in my own words with some added theatrical flare, but I’ll leave it to you to decide if they’re true.” - Katerina #artapart
