Table-Reading of Sophocles’ Trachiniae

Table-Reading of Sophocles’ Trachiniae
Sponsored by the Greek, Roman, and Classical Tradition Drama Working Group
Amy R. Cohen (Randolph College), organizer

This event is designed to involve attendees in the process of developing ideas for an upcoming production of Trachiniae and to demonstrate aspects of practical scholarship on ancient drama.  Attendees will first voice the different roles in the play, which will give the director a clearer sense of the possibilities for the show itself.  The second part of the event will be discussion, with attendees sharing their observations about what they’ve just seen and heard (whether or not they were one of the readers).
