WORKSHOPS

Lost Greek Tragedy: Staging the Fragmented & the Fantastic


Saturday, 26 October 2019 | 13.30-18.00

The Cockpit Theatre (Studio 3), Marylebone, London


Cyborphic is excited to be hosting two workshops on lost/fragmentary Greek tragedy. These workshops will be of interest to anyone into Greek Tragedy and they will showcase various perspectives of approaching a fragmentary play. We particularly encourage playwrights and theatremakers to attend. Knowledge of ancient Greek is not necessary. The workshops will take place at the Cockpit Theatre in London, on Saturday 26th October 2019, in advance of our public Rehearsed Reading of our complete version of Euripides’ lost play Melanippe Wise in November. More details and tickets for the Reading: https://melanippewise.eventbrite.co.uk
