Natalie Haynes: Troy Story
Approx 1 hour
Star of the BBC Radio 4 series Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics, Natalie brings her unique combination of ancient history and stand-up comedy to take you on a tour around the Trojan War, the setting for her latest novel A Thousand Ships. From the causes of the Trojan War (divine displeasure) to its complex aftermath, this show encompasses some of the greatest poetry ever written: The Iliad, The Odyssey, The Oresteia, The Trojan Women and much more. The stories of the women affected by the war have been largely untold, but Natalie takes them out of the shadows and places them where they belong: at the heart of the story.Remember, if a performance has sold out, you can check back on Monday 20th May for returns!
