Event Details

UCL Greek and Latin are proud to host a staged reading of Aquila Theatre's innovative A Female Philoctetes, an exploration of Sophocles’ Philoctetes reimagined with the title role played as a female combat soldier. This groundbreaking production features a cast of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

The Aquila Theatre Company’s public programming has been staged for the US President and First Lady at the White House, for members of the Supreme Court, The American National Council on the Arts and at hundreds of public libraries, theaters, arts centers, schools and colleges throughout the United States and beyond. Aquila performs innovative classical drama in New York City and tours throughout the world.

A post performance discussion will follow, led by Dr Rosa Andújar (UCL) in conversation with actors, translator Dr Peter Meineck (NYU and Aquila) and director Desiree Sanchez. 

The event is part of You|Stories, the innovative US national programme that uses arts and humanities to explore the ancient and modern narratives of war.  You|Stories is funded in part by the American National Endowment for the Humanities.

The event is also sponsored by New York University London.
