    Classics Faculty Ancient Drama Prize 2022

    Classics Faculty Ancient Drama Prize 2022

    Arlene Holmes-Henderson, Senior Research Fellow in Classics Education, chats with the winners of the faculty's exciting new performance competition for young people from across the UK. In 2021 the Faculty of Classics, in partnership with the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (APGRD), invited young people aged 11 - 18 from across the UK to perform a piece of ancient drama or deliver a spoken word composition.

    A judging panel of academics and performing arts professionals were delighted to watch nearly 100 short films. The quality of performance was consistently high, and it was a very difficult task indeed to whittle the entries down to our winners! Arlene catches up with Bianca (Solo - Translation), Sydney (Solo - Spoken Word), and Aiko, Grace, and Isla from Wirral Grammar School for Girls, along with their teacher Mr Beswick (Group - Translation).
