Every three years (since 1882), The Cambridge Greek Play Society invites Cambridge students and alumni to perform a classic Greek play in ancient Greek at the Cambridge Arts Theatre. Students work with a professional director and creative team for 9-10 months to prepare this. The result is a unique event in the British theatre scene.
The production in October 2022 will be a double bill: Aeschylus's tragedy The Persians and Euripides' satyr play The Cyclops. Cyclops is the only surviving satyr play and very rarely performed.
This production will be directed and designed by the same award-winning creative team behind the much acclaimed 2019 Cambridge Greek Play, Oedipus at Colonus.
