The 2016 Cambridge Greek Play

The Cambridge Greek Play Committee are thrilled to announce that the

2016 Cambridge Greek Play will be a double bill of Sophocles’ ANTIGONE and Aristophanes’ LYSISTRATA

We are excited to be welcoming back director Helen Eastman and composer Alex Silverman, the team behind AGAMEMNON (2010) and PROMETHEUS/FROGS (2013), for their third consecutive Greek Play. The production will take place at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from Wednesday 12th to Saturday 15th October 2016 at 2.30pm and 7.45pm each day, with free schools’ talks taking place at the Theatre before each matinee.

If you wish to bring a school party or a large group, please contact Victoria Willingale (Marketing and Education Officer, Cambridge Arts Theatre) on 01223 578912 or email

Vicky will also be able to manage your booking for both the production and the pre-show talks.

We anticipate that the production will be appropriate for students aged 14 and up, but due to the content of LYSISTRATA there are some scenes of a sexual nature. Vicky will be able to advise on the suitability of the production for younger students.
