The series:
Classical Greek drama is brought vividly to life in this series of new translations. These new versions remain faithful to the original Greek, yet the language has all the immediacy of contemporary English. The result is a series of genuinely actable plays that bring students as close as possible to the playwrights' original words and intentions. Students are encouraged to engage with the texts through detailed commentaries, and to explore the plays' dramatic qualities through practical exercises and experimentation with the expressive use of voice, movement, mime and musical accompaniment.
