On Sun 9 Jun, acclaimed actors Alex Jennings and Dame Sian Phillips lead a wondrous odyssey to the birthplace of contemporary literature with It’s All Greek at The Lowry.

Brimming with love, laughter, yearning, tragedy, deceit and all of literature’s timeless human foibles, this unmissable show adds new, mesmerising depths to the tales of Oedipus, Zeus, Hera, Medea and others as Dame Sian Phillips and Alex Jennings deliver masterful recitals of David Stuttard’s glittering translations.

From the giddy optimism of youth to the transcendent tribulations of old age, Phillips and Jennings bridge the gap between ancient civilisation and the modern age with a joyous, illuminating and profoundly moving celebration of our eternal complexities and heartening manual for how to live our lives today, as told by those who knew it best over two thousand years ago.
