The paper contains the publication, for the first time, and the critical examination of four Theatre Review numbers by Antonis Kosmatopoulos, which were presented in Thessaloniki during the Nazi Occupation (1941–1944). Through an analysis of their subject patterns and ideological features, it became obvious that the tensions followed by Theatre Review's playwrights during the interwar period, which had been interrupted because of the country's participation in WWII and the theatre's patriotic mobilization, continued during the Occupation, though with some diff erentiating characteristics.
