NEW PLAN FOR CYPRUS: Last Friday afternoon, the British government announced a new plan for Cyprus which it is determined to implement immediately. The plan is the same as that known as the «Macmillan plan,» which was rejected by the Greek government and the Cypriot Ethnarchy, with only a few minor changes, apart from a provision that grants the British governor the power to appoint monoethnic municipal councils, which would virtually divide the island along ethnic lines. Although no official announcement has yet been made, sources say the Greek government will also reject this new plan. ATHENS FESTIVAL: The Athens State Orchestra will appear at the Herod Atticus Theater tomorrow night, performing works by Beethoven. Tickets are being sold at 50, 35, 25, 20 and 15 drachmas. IPHIGENIA: The National Theater is to perform Euripides’ tragedy «Iphigenia in Tauris» at the open-air Herod Atticus Theater tonight. NEW COMEDY: Dimitris Psathas’s new comedy «The Thief Shouts» is to premiere this winter season at the Kotopouli Theater, performed by the Mary Aroni – Dinos Iliopoulos company.
