Fenella Fielding and Stephen Greif lead us on a journey through the looking glass of ancient Greece to reveal seductive female sensitivity, tough, hardened masculinity... and not a little lust. In an evening of laughter underscored with just the right amount of pathos, Fielding and Greif's voices interact brilliantly to weave moments of wit and humour with wisdom and high drama. So come and experience tears, treachery… and just a little murder.
Sold out in February, this stunning show returns to Live at Zédel with David Stuttard's bang up-to-date translations of some of the most memorable highlights of Greek poetry and drama, so fresh they might have been written yesterday. Fact is, darlings, the ancient Greeks may be long gone, but human nature and emotions have changed not one jot.
[Performance at City Hall, London] "By far the most moving was the veteran actress Fenella Fielding's… [words] were not only almost unbearably moving, but utterly relevant to the slaughter of innocents now carrying on in Syria and Iraq" - Harry Eyres, Financial Times 2014
Starring Fenella Fielding (Carry On films and 6 decades on the stage including Valmouth and Pieces of Eight) and Stephen Greif (Blakes 7, Citizen Smith, Royal Shakespeare Co and National Theatre).
