The main difference between Greek and modern drama is that the Greeks thought of theatre as religious ritual - right? Prof. Tim Whitmarsh picks apart Sophocles' most famous play to show its radical experimentalism with ideas about divinity and even atheism: like the Hitchinses and Dawkinses of his day, Sophocles was part of a wider movement retooling society's attitudes towards the gods.
This event is part of the Festival of Ideas programme.
For adults. Free of charge.
