In the wake of the 2017 #MeToo movement and Brexit Day, Aulos makes its London debut – two powerful plays, both timelier than ever before.
WOMEN OF THE MOURNING FIELDS
Slandered by history. Forgotten as women. Rome’s final curtain has fallen, yet three women still linger in the wings. Tainted by Emperor Nero’s legacy, his mother Agrippina fights against the injustice of history. . Forced onto the stage with her resentful daughter-in-law and the woman who usurped her role, another unwelcome performance is imminent…but scripts can always be rewritten.
ANTIGONE NA H’ÉIREANN
Driven by faith to resurrect the IRA, Annie battles to bring her family the honour they deserve. A hard-border Brexit has severed Ireland in two. In the shadow of her father and the memory of the Disappeared, faith, family and factions collide.
A new Northern Irish adaptation of the myth by multi award-winning writer James Beagon, inspired by Sophocles, Aeschylus and other classical authors.
