Dionysus Theatre Company brings ‘The Elixir’ comedy to Sydney 


The rib-tickling comedy The Elixir is coming to Sydney for the entire family to enjoy.  

Direct from Greece, written by Panagioti Zafiri, with adaptation by Lucy Miller with English surtitles, The Elixir is set to be performed by local, well known theatre group, Dionysus Theatre Company and proudly sponsored by Mytelinian House and Antenna Pacific Greece.


When you combine a naughty businessman, an anxious wife, a misfit sister, a brainless daughter with her opportunistic boyfriend, an idiotic chauffeur, a conniving maid, a zany coffee cup reader, a public notary and a huge fortune all under one roof, you have all the ingredients for a special kind of “poison.”  With the arrival of the mysterious Jenny, murder is in the air. The question is… who will be left standing?
