Trent University’s Classics Drama Group Presents “Andromache” from February 3 to 6 at Nozhem


Community Welcome to Attend Production of Classic Greek Tragedy

Monday, February 2, 2009, Peterborough

The Classics Drama Group of the Department of Ancient History & Classics at Trent University will present the Greek play “Andromache” by Euripides from February 3 to 6 at 8:00 p.m. each evening in Nozhem, First Peoples’ Performance Space at Gzowski College.

This year's production is directed by Trent's alumnus George Kovacs of the Classics Drama Group (CDG) and will be performed by the Conacher Players. Euripides wrote the play c. 425 B.C. which tells the tragic story of Andromache who lived her life as a slave following the Trojan War.

The CDG was founded by Professor Martin Boyne in 1993 and presented its first production in 1994. Since that time it has presented Greek plays in translation, every year until 2004, in the Lady Eaton College Pit. In 2005, the CDG moved its performances to Trent’s new theatre space Nozhem: First Peoples Performance Space in Gzowski College.

The community is welcome to attend. Tickets are only $5.00 per person. To make reservations, please contact Kathy Axcell at kaxcell@trentu.ca or call her at 748-1011, ext. 7848.
