BA Classical Studies with Film
Director of the Greek Play 2012
I have been involved with the King’s Greek Play since my first year of university, as part of the cast and as assistant director. The friends I have made throughout my involvement in both productions have made life at university an even more rewarding experience.
The long standing tradition of performing a Greek Play in the original language was part of the attraction for me to study here at the King’s College London Classics Department and I am thrilled at being given the opportunity to direct the 2012 production.
I have chosen to stage Euripides’ Hecubabecause I feel it will appeal to a contemporary audience as it focuses on human moral dilemmas rather than the influences of the Olympian Gods. Euripides raises the issue of whether revenge in extreme circumstances is a justifiable act which is a question humanity continually battles with today. I hope to present the audience with an unforgettable thought provoking theatrical experience.
