About the event

Writer, broadcaster and star of the BBC Radio 4 series Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics, Natalie brings her unique combination of ancient history knowledge and stand-up comedy to Tara. Natalie spent 12 years as a comedian before returning to her first love with her book, The Ancient Guide to Modern Life. To coincide with her latest novel, The Children of Jocasta, she takes audiences on a tour through the earliest Greek Tragedies and Comedies, from the first performance by Thespis to the raucous sex-strike of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, via the great tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. The focus of the show will, in part, be decided by the audience. You will be invited to choose what you would like to hear more about: comedy, tragedy, the historical period which gave rise to these timeless plays or, if you prefer, a bit of everything. Ancient history has never been so much fun.
