The next festival on our calendar is the Dionysia, which spans the 10th through the 17th of the month Thyrsos (or March 4-10 by the common reckoning.)
Although it’s still a ways off I spent much of last night doing research on theatrical culture in the Black Sea region, starting with Edith Hall’s masterful study.
One of the things that stood out for me is that historical subjects seem to have been nearly as popular as mythological; which further got me thinking that it might be fun to write a play for the festival.
But I’m uncertain if I should do one on Themistokles, Skyles, Mithridates Eupator, Grigori Rasputin, or Aleksandr Dugin.
What do you guys think?
