Las Tesmoforias - UPUA Theatre Club

The UPUA Theatre Club will be performing their up to date version of Las Tesmoforias (Thesmophoriazusae) on the 4 June. The play is based on a Greek comedy by Aristophanes that was performed during the Dionysia celebrations in 411 d. C. This play is a parody of some of Euripides’s plays and is based on the amount of power women can achieve when they unite for a common cause.

This year, the UPUA Theatre Club cast is made up of twelve actresses and four actors and their director Elisabeth Sogorb who has used choir music as the foundation of the creation process.
