Event Details

Friends! Athenians! Sisters!

We invite you to join us for 🌕 Thesmophoria 🌕 in the garden of Rote Beete on Friday 7th August.

“It’s time to take back the narrative!”

We are a NEW theatre ensemble of 9 women artists who over the last month have reworked Aristophanes’ comedy from 411 BC: Thesmophoriasuzae.

The play is set at the annual Thesmophoria festival that actually took place in ancient Athens and brought together women in worship of Demeter, goddess of agriculture. The women of Thesmophoria are pissed off at how the mainstream amphitheatres mis-represent them… when the patriarch of Greek theatre sends his minion to spy on them, they decide it’s time to take matters into their own hands!

🌿 Pay-what-you-can
🌿 Outdoor Theatre
