The Suppliant Women by Aeschylus. New version by David Greig. Direction Ramin Gray. Fifty women leave everything behind to board a boat in North Africa and flee across the Mediterranean. They are escaping forced marriage, hoping for protection and assistance, seeking asylum in Greece. Written 2,500 years ago, one of the world’s oldest plays speaks to us through the ages with startling resonance for our troubled times. Featuring a chorus of local women from London, this is part play, part ritual. Director Ramin Gray unearths an electric connection to the deepest and most mysterious ideas of humanity: who are we, where do we belong - and if all goes wrong - who will take us in? firstname.lastname@example.org
on a perfectly drizzly #london grey day, one gets some cultcha and goes to the theatre #darling and sees a perfectly wonderful #feminist play written over two and half thousand years ago but has so much resonance with today #friendship #oldfriends #perfectafternoon #thesuppliantwomen
This was absolutely epic. 👏🏻
