Ancient Plays for Modern Minds: A Public Engagement Programme
To complement the production of Euripides’ Bacchae, the UCL Department of Greek & Latin is offering a series of public lectures and panels which aim to illuminate the play and its context and to bring ancient drama to life for a modern generation. This exciting programme includes talks by academic experts every evening of the play’s performance, as well as a one-day symposium, ’Staging Greek Tragedy Today’, involving contemporary theatre practitioners and academics in dialogue. All of our speakers have experience in working with schools, and the events will be suitable for students of Classics, Classical Studies, and Drama at all levels, as well as accessible to those without prior experience of Greek drama.

In 2015 we will be offering the following events, free of charge and open to all:
