Western theatre has its roots in the theatre of Ancient Greece. Written over 2,000 years ago, the Tragedies deal with the big themes of love, loss, pride, power, and the relationship between man and the gods.
We read and discuss the plays and share any information we discover from other sources.
Having covered most of the main tragedies, we’ve decided to move on to The Odyssey in Emily Wilson’s modern verse translation, beginning at our next meeting in January.
This would be a good time for anyone thinking of joining us to try a ‘taster’ session, as we now have vacancies for two new members.
We meet at 2pm on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the Quaker Meeting House, next meeting on January 18th.
