Cambridge Greek Play

Every three years a production of ancient Greek drama is staged in Cambridge, in the original language with English subtitles. 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. 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 from October 2019 and will be a modern day version of Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus. Updates on the production can be found on at cambridgegreekplay.com.

The last Greek Play ran at the Cambridge Arts  Theatre in 2016 and was a double bill of Sophocles’  Antigone and Aristophanes’ Lysistrata. The production was 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, as well as photos, videos and audio recordings from the 2010, 2013 and 2016 productions here
