Bradfield Greek Play

The Bradfield Greek Play returns to Greeker this summer for the 41st production which will be Oedipus The King .

After considerable discussion with staff and pupils, it has been decided that the 2023 production will, for the first time, be a hybrid of both classical Greek and modern English.

This is in no way an attempt to reduce the challenge for pupils taking part, but an attempt to make the play more accessible to a wider audience and to help nurture a love of classical theatre in them.

The production will feature a new ‘cinematic’ score, incorporating elements especially recorded for this production by internationally acclaimed aulos player Barnaby Brown.

Sophocles’ play, first performed in 429BC, follows Oedipus’ discovery of a dark family secret that threatens not only to destroy the city but the King himself.


This play contains themes which are of an adult nature and may not be suitable for those under the age of 11.
