Cambridge Greek Play

Every three years a production of ancient Greek drama is staged in Cambridge, in the original language with English surtitles. The show has professional direction and design, and student actors and crew. Teachers and students are very warmly encouraged to attend this exciting and unusual opportunity to experience Greek drama, and recent productions have been almost totally sold out. For some, the experience may even set in train a desire to apply to Cambridge and participate in a future play! 

The next Greek Play will run at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from 12 to 15 October 2016, and will be a double bill of Sophocles’ Antigone and Aristophanes’ Lysistrata. The production is led by the same team that created the acclaimed Agamemnon in 2010 and the double-bill of Prometheus Bound and Frogs in 2013, with director Helen Eastman and an original musical score by Alex Silverman.

You can find more information about the 2016 play, as well as photos, videos and audio recordings from the 2010 and 2013 productions, at www.cambridgegreekplay.com
