The UCL Department of Greek and Latin is delighted to invite you to our 2016 production of Menander’s Dyskolos (‘The Grouch’), directed by Hippolyte Broud and produced by Chris Gallacher. Dyskolos is the story of Knemon, a grouchy old man who hates the world. His wife has left him, and he lives alone with his daughter on his farm. A city boy from Athens, Sostratos, falls in love at first sight with his daughter, and pretends to be a hardworking farmer in order to impress our grouch. Hilarity ensues in this award-winning play of 316 BC (when it won the first prize at the Lenaea festival in ancient Athens).
