Aeschylus' The Persians

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The Persians (Persae) is the only surviving Greek tragedy that treats a non-mythological subject. It was first performed in 472 BC, barely seven years after the final defeat of the Persians, and is a representation of suffering that remains relevant to this day.

The King's College Greek Play has been an annual tradition since 1953. What distinguishes this event is that the KCL Greek play is the only production in the country to be performed every year in the original Greek with English surtitles.

On Thursday at 6pm there is a free pre-performance talk by Professor Simon Goldhill (University of Cambridge) and Dr Lindsay Allen (King's College London).

Part of the University of London Festival of Greek Drama.
