Will act for food: Greek theater aids crisis needy

Will act for food: Greek theater aids crisis needy

Theater is meant to provide food for thought, but in a Greek city it also feeds the needy.
Amid the country's acute financial crisis, the State Theater of Northern Greece has launched a series of performances where, instead of cash, spectators can hand over food at the ticket booth.
The campaign opened in Thessaloniki on Friday evening with dozens of people, clutching bags of flour, sugar and pasta, lining up to watch Irish playwright Enda Walsh's Chatroom. More than 20 performances of five different plays will run until early May.
Theater art director Sotiris Hadzakis said the food will go to charities for children and abused women.
Tickets for the theater normally cost (EURO)5-(EURO)20 ($7-27).
