Summary
They gave their names to some of the most memorable plays in Western history, and, thousands of years later, they are still very much a presence in contemporary culture. Who were the women of classical Greek drama? In this program, the presentation of powerful women in Medea, Antigone, and Lysistrata is contrasted with the circumscribed role of women in Athenian society by Princeton University’s Froma Zeitlin; Helene Foley, of Barnard College; Jeffrey Henderson, of Boston University; Robin Mitchell-Boyask, of Temple University; Mary-Kay Gamel, of the University of California, Santa Cruz; and Peter Meineck, producing artistic director of the critically and academically acclaimed Aquila Theatre Company. Film clips from notable productions support this in-depth discussion of women and their representation in ancient Greece
