Workshop: Screening of the Actors of Dionysus’ Lysistrata.



  • Identify 3 or 4 key productions of your chosen play and email the archivist to set up an appointment for your visit in Week 6. Please cc. me in to your email. This should be done by the start of Week 4 *at the latest*.
  • Read the first chapter of Simon Goldhill’s How to Stage Greek Tragedy, entitled ‘Space and Concept’ (which I will attach as a pdf asap).  Think about how Simon Goldhill’s advice, as a classicist working exclusively in the reception of Greek tragedy, differs from that of David Edgar, who writes for a general audience.
  • Watch these post-production audience interviews for the Actors of Dionysus’ Lysistrata which raise some interesting questions about accessibility and cultural translation:
