Scripps College Humanities 204

Refreshments will be served.


Thursday February 5: Aristophanes, Lysistrata

March 5 ?: Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound

March 26: Euripides, Helen

THE FORMAT: Very informal; I will bring texts and we will share roles. If you just want to listen and watch, that is okay.  Those who are being “actors” will stand at the front, but there is no need for acting ability. I will also bring some minimal costumes and props. The point is just to enjoy ourselves and get to know some plays.
