I’m very excited to announce the launch of the new Cambridge Greek Play website!
The new website is not just the place for finding out about the new productions of Antigone and Lysistrata in 2016 (which you can also find out about via @camgreekplay). It’s also meant as an archive of past productions – you can now watch the fully-subtitled recordings of the 2013 production of Prometheus and Frogs and browse photos from almost every production back to 1882. I blogged a bit about the experience of putting this all together from the Greek Play archive over the summer, and some highlights to look out for on the new site.
Even more exciting is all the educational material we’ve been able to collect. For almost the whole history of the Cambridge Greek Play, academics have given lectures and created helpful materials for school and university educators who want to involve Greek drama in their teaching. Now we have a place to put all this stuff, so that people can use it for years after the play itself is over.
I’m really pleased with the progress we’ve made on the new site, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it. Already on the site’s first day we’ve had hits from all over the world – I’m hoping that students, teachers, researchers and interested members of the public all get to see and enjoy this incredible archive.
