§ Dramatis Personae Valeria (f), a student of dramatic art; Ammelia (f), a student of classical dance; Elina (f), a student of photography.

§ Synopsis “In Athens, Greece, three friends, Valeria, a student of dramatic art, Ammelia, a student of classical dance and Elina, a student of photography, keep secret their love affair with a common friend, an architect. There is no problem up to the moment when the hypocritical architect sends all three a similar bunch of red roses, which causes them to discover the bitter truth. Hurt, they suffer each in their own way. Their pride and friendship are tested. But, their dreams of youth prove stronger than love disappointment. Their friendship continues on a basis which would protect them against the hypocrisy of men.”—ZAPHIROPOULOU Angeliki - Playwrights and their Plays, http://www.doollee.com/ZaphiropoulouAngeliki.htm, accessed July 14, 2003.

§ Comment Angeliki Zaphiropoulou was born in Chaikali, a Greek village near Patras (Peloponnesos, the Cultural Capital of Europe 2006). Based in Athens, “Angeliki has studied ‘Screenwriting: Visualizing Your Story (Dramatic Art)’, University of California Extension and ‘Starting to Write’, Open College of the Arts (OCA), England, by correspondence. During the years she was an employee of PPC, she studied ‘Journalism’ and ‘Public Relations’ through ICS, London and translated plays by English, American and French playwrights. Some of them had been presented on the Greek TV. In 1990, she decided on an early retirement to be free to devote her time to playwriting. She has written, in English, plays in three acts and in One Act. Two of her One Act Plays, ‘The Violinist’ and ‘The Hypocrite’ were published in one volume in London in 1998. The Violinist has been translated into French by Michele Larchez, her best French friend, she first met in the University of Cambridge, England, in 1972 when Angeliki attended a Vacation Course on Shakespeare in the Mid-Twentieth Century. She has written plays in Greek also. She has attended theatre performances in Greece and abroad from the age of four. She is an Associate Member of The Foreign Press Association Of Greece (from 1985). . . . Angeliki would be delighted if her plays, published and unpublished, could be presented by theatre companies in England and other countries. She particularly enjoys being informed of many countries theatre news on her SW radio in English, French, Spanish and Italian.”—Author List [Playwrights’ Co-operative], http://plays4theatre.site-street.net/profiles.htm, accessed June 20, 2003. • Research could include “Violinist,” a one-act drama, 3m2f, ISBN 184094353X; see ZAPHIROPOULOU Angeliki - Playwrights and their Plays, http://www.doollee.com/ZaphiropoulouAngeliki.htm.
