Every three years a production of ancient Greek drama is staged in Cambridge, in the original language. The next Greek Play will take place on October 16th-19th 2013, and will be a double-bill consisting of the Prometheus Bound followed by Aristophanes' Frogs. Performances will be at 2.30 and 7.45. As with 2010's sell-out production of Agamemnon, the director is Helen Eastman.
The Prometheus is a classic exploration of the place of humankind and human intelligence in the world, while the Frogs combines slapstick and parody in asking 'Can Greek tragedy save society?'. The Features tab contains some more information about the plays.
The 2013 production has now been cast. Auditions for design and technical roles are ongoing: see the Get Involved tab for more details.
