Petronius’ Satyricon

I took part in this play with Alyson directing while studying Classics at Glasgow University in 2006. This play is fun to do especially if you have an interest in Classical literature, well worth a read.

This play is a stage adaptation based on the translation by P G Walsh of The Satyricon, a Roman novel by Petronius. Although the subject of a film by Fellini, The Satyricon was staged for the first time in history in the Debating Chambers, Glasgow University Union on 30th January 2006. The play highlighted themes of male rape, mental illness and suicide, which were not necessarily evident in the original text.
