Ancient Plays for Modern Minds: A Public Engagement Programme

To complement the production of Dyskolos, the UCL Department of Greek & Latin is offering public lectures 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. 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 2016 we will be offering the following events, free of charge and open to all:

Wednesday 10th February

6.00-7.00pm – Public Talk by Professor Gesine Manuwald (UCL) on Ancient ‘New’ Comedy
Venue: Roberts Building G06, Sir Ambrose Fleming LT

Thursday 11th February

6.00-7.00pm – Public Talk by Dr Rosa Andújar (UCL) on Menander in Context
Venue: Roberts Building G08, Sir David Davies LT
