Dionysus Theatre Company’s ‘The Elixir’ premieres in Sydney




Dionysus Theatre Company held the premiere of ‘The Elixir’ play on Saturday, March 16 at the Mytilenian House in Canterbury.

The rib-tickling comedy, direct from Greece, took audiences on an unforgettable journey, with laughter and entertainment throughout the night.

Written by Panagioti Zafiri, with adaptation by Lucy Miller with English surtitles, the play will continue to be performed by local, well known theatre group, Dionysus Theatre Company, 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?
