The Oxford Greek Play: Euripides' Orestes

The 2005 Oxford Greek Play is nigh. Details, as copied from an email I received about it, are as follows:


The Oxford University Classical Drama Society celebrates 125 years of the historic Oxford Greek Play with a production of Euripides' ORESTES.

A student production with original music and choreography, ORESTES will be performed in ancient Greek with English surtitles at the Oxford Playhouse from 12th-15th October.

Performances at 2.30pm and 7.30pm (Friday 2.30pm and 8.00pm). Tickets cost
£9/12, students £7. Visit for more information, or phone the Oxford Playhouse Box Office on 01865 305305. Please book early to avoid disappointment."

swisstone has already expressed interest, and I'm certainly keen to go. Previous experience suggests it's likely to be pretty damned impressive. Is anyone else interested, and if so, which dates would be best for you?

In conversation about it, swisstone and I were gravitating towards Saturday 15th, which could of course mean either the matinee or the evening performance. I've already promised swisstone (and K if she'd like to come too?) my sofa-bed if required, I'm afraid, but then again if we went to the afternoon performance, it could be slotted fairly easily into a day-trip from almost anywhere in England anyway.

Let me know if you're interested! I'm quite happy to handle ticket-booking, etc.
