McGill Classics Play

Plato's Symposium, translated into English and directed by Meghan Poplacean and Alex Martalogu, 1-4 February, 2017 at the Mainline Theatre


All Montréal university students are welcome to audition- anyone who comes out for an audition and commits to the project will have an on-stage role. Rehearsls are from the 11-14th October- sign up for a slot here. If you can't make an audition slot, but would still like to audition, or if you'd like to be involved in the production behind-the-scenes, please email mcgillclassicsplay [at] gmail [dot] com or message us on Facebook.


The McGill Classics Play is a non-profit venture committed to giving Montreal university students a unique educational experience, while fostering cultural exchanges with our Montreal community around ancient texts. We offer free shows and free performance and translation workshops open to the community, and we bring in guest speakers for public lectures on Classical drama and performance. Any support you can give in helping us continue this kind of programming is so appreciated. You can donate directly to the McGill Classics Play here, and you will automatically receive a tax receipt for your donation. Thank you for supporting the McGill Classics Play!

The McGill Classics Play is a member of the Quebec Drama Federation, and its community partner, Oimoi Productions, is a member of the Freestanding Room.
