When everything started to go into lockdown in March, we got in touch with the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington DC to propose a series of online readings which would start straightaway. Our intention was to build communities during this period of uncertainty, and to examine old stories to understand what they tell us about being human. The CHS and the Kosmos Society are now our brilliant partners in Reading Greek Tragedies Online. Join us every Wednesday at 8pm (UK time) for scenes and discussion from a different tragedy. We’re aiming to read every extant Greek tragedy (plus some comedies and other bits as well) before the end of the year. We’d like to thank the amazing actors and academics who have already contributed to the series - by the end of the year we hope to have created an international ensemble of actors who will have made this all possible.
