Ancient theatre in inner cities
Ancient theatre is a diverse and fascinating aspect of the Classical world. Centuries after they were first written, we are still haunted by the themes of the great plays of the ancient Greeks, and moved by their poetic intensity and beauty. So many elements of theatre today have been informed by the theatre of the ancient world, and exploring the roots of drama is a revealing and extraordinary process of historical, cultural and literary discovery.
The Iris Project runs a variety of different ancient theatre initiatives for inner London schools and communities. Please click on the links below for details:
