The UCL Department of Greek and Latin is proud to present the 2016 Classical Play: Menander’s Dyskolos

Directed by Hippolyte Broud, assisted by Suzahn Ebrahimian and Kyriaki Ioannidou. Produced by Chris Gallacher.

In a modern English translation by Maurice Balme.

Dyskolos is the story of Knemon, a grouchy old man who hates the world. His wife has left him, and he lives alone with his daughter on his farm. A city boy from Athens, Sostratos, falls in love at first sight with his daughter, and pretends to be a hardworking farmer in order to impress our grouch. Hilarity ensues in this award-winning play of 316 BC (when it won the first prize at the Lenaea festival in ancient Athens).
