And just as the summer was preparing its exit, autumn was considering arriving and schools were about to open, we had the good fortune of catching an outdoor children's play* based on a book by the acclaimed Penelope Delta, written and directed by the uber-talented Carmen Rougeri.
It was truly a magical night: the actors were superb, the costumes were utterly captivating, the adaptable set ingenious, the story both highly entertaining and educational and to top it off, the weather was perfect.
I can assure you that a great time was had by all.
*The story was based on a well-known children's book called Paramithi Xoris Onoma (Fairytale Without A Name) which was first published in 1910 but could have easily been written as a commentary on current events.
