This evening, the ACE Players (Lycia 2014 troupe), aided and abetted by Mary (Wright), performed what Andrew allowed was a heavily abridged version of Agamemnon, by Aeschylus.
The opening scene: the Palace of Agamemnon. (Night, a little before sunrise.) As it happened, the sun set and the dark rose as the drama progressed.
Even though we had an ‘official’ Programme Seller, in the shape of Marjorie, I chose – once again – to be in the audience. And was glad of it. Spending much of my working life performing on stages around the world, this would have been too much like work. But it also gave me a new sense of how tremendously moving Greek drama can be.
A remarkable evening.
