Rehearsals are currently underway in the Judith E Wilson Drama Studio, (Faculty of English), for this Autumn’s Cambridge Greek Play in preparation for performances at the Cambridge Arts Theatre (16-19 October 2019).
The triennial Greek Play 2019 is Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus and will be performed in ancient Greek with surtitles.
One of Sophocles’ last works, and the middle play in his “Theban trilogy”, Oedipus at Colonus explores the final days of the exiled Oedipus, old, blind and wandering. It is one of the greatest plays about old age, the bearing of life’s horror, and the transcendence of the ordinary.
Directed and designed by the Off West End Award Winning team of Daniel Goldman, Jemima Robinson, Richard Williamson and Xavier Velastin, Director Daniel Goldman is known for his imaginative theatre work in several languages with his Tangram Theatre Company and beyond.
