It’s 1947. Two women in Port Pirie greet unexpected guests at their doors. At one: a man looking for shelter, work and to leave his past behind him. At the other: a woman seeking someone she has lost, and something that was stolen from her.

It is said that if a stranger knocks on your door, you let them in – they could be a god in disguise. But, what do they bring in with them?

Inspired by the oral histories of Greek, Cypriot and Italian migrants to regional SA, this historical fiction explores the untold struggles of belonging, identity and family in post World War II Australia. Featuring Dina Panozzo (Packed to the Rafters), Renato Musolino (1984) and Eugenia Fragos (Things I Know To Be True), this family drama has been written from the heart, especially for State Theatre Company by Resident Artist and Greek Cypriot descendant Elena Carapetis.

The Gods of Strangers is a trilingual performance. It will be performed in English, with sections performed in Greek and Italian with English surtitles.
