Theseus and Ariadne

It is not often we have a verse play performed at Player-Playwrights. It hasn't happened since Treasurer Jethro Dykes has been there. Next Monday, January 5th,  he brings us Theseus and Ariadne.
 The play is not only written in iambic pentameter, it deals with ancient tragic themes from the classical world. We all know about Theseus and the minotaur. Less is known about what happened after the minotaur was slain. That is what we will find out..
 No less important is Ariadne, who graduates from being the love interest, to being the central character of the play. Her story is full of pathos, and also full of shocks.
 Please come and enjoy this journey into Greek be honest, as it's Greek, it ought to be in hexameters, not pentameters.....

7.30 at the North London Tavern.
