The Oxford Greek Play

Event: The Oxford Greek Play

Wednesday 28th April, 5pm

The Oxford Greek Play is a major educational and outreach event for schools, particularly for students approaching GCSEs and A-levels (or equivalent). This year’s multimedia production, Euripides’ Orestes, will be streamed live *at no cost* online on 28 April 2021 at 5pm. The recording of the premiere will then be available permanently on YouTube.

This year, the play will be predominantly in English, with subtitles for any classical Greek. A short academic discussion with outreach in mind — between world-leading specialists Edith Hall, Fiona Macintosh, Natalie Haynes, and Rosa Andújar — will feature during the performance.

If you would like to book free tickets for yourself and/or your students, please follow this link:

If you would like to receive updates on the production’s outreach, including forthcoming educational packs and other supporting materials, we are also creating a mailing list for teachers of the humanities (especially of Classical Civilization, Drama, English, Ancient History, Classical Greek and Latin). Please sign up here, and feel free to share with your colleagues and partner organisations:

You can also find them @orestesoxford on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok, for a peek behind the scenes and to get to know the cast and creatives behind the production.
