The New College Classical Drama Society is delighted to announce that this year’s Greek Play will be Sophocles’ Electra. This will mark the Society's 13th annual play, following on from its sell-out run of Medea last year. It will take place on Wednesday 31 May – Saturday 3 June at 8pm in the New College Cloisters. 

6.00pm-7.30pm: Drinks and Buffet Supper (New College Gardens by the Mound or South Undercroft, if wet)

8.00pm-9.45pm: Sophocles’ Electra play in The New College Cloisters.

The cost is £44.00 per person (£36.00 drinks and buffet supper; £8.00 play ticket).

You will not be issued a physical ticket for the play but your name will be on a list of those attending on the door. The Classical Drama Society ticket officers will register you on arrival in the Cloisters.

If you do not wish to attend the Saturday night buffet supper but would like to watch the play on any of the nights (Wednesday 31 May to Saturday 3 June) please book your tickets directly via the relevant night's ticketing page below. Please note that the buffet for Old Members of New College is only available prior to the Saturday night's performance.
