Bianca wins Oxford Outreach Ancient Drama Competition

The David Raeburn prize is run by the Classics Faculty at Oxford University (in partnership with the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama) and requires students to submit a five-minute performance of an extract from a Greek or Roman play.

Bianca in Year 7 performed an extract from the prologue to Dyskolos (The Bad-Tempered Man) by Menander. This was a UK-wide competition and hundreds of students entered. Staff and post-graduate students from the Faculty of Classics at Oxford judged the performances, and Bianca won first prize. Well done Bianca!
