Actors of Dionysus (aod) specialises in new adaptations of ancient Greek drama and new writing inspired by myth.
“A gorgeous evocation of intergenerational schism and mutual understanding.”
“So many ravishing moments… Astonishing and unforgettable… this is highly, highly recommended production.”
“Shasha is both versatile and elegant: not only did she convince with her prim cut-glass Patricia Hodge, and diction to die for, but also was impressive when being lofted upwards as a butterfly.”
“Thoughtful and intelligent, (Tamsin) Shasha has the acting as well as the rope skills, a most unusual and rewarding hour.”
