Wild Yak & The Foreign Office present

After Aeschylus, re-created by David Greig, John Browne, Ramin Gray & Sasha Milavic Davies

In a city destroyed by war, the victorious Egyptians demand to marry the fifty daughters of Danaos. But, strange omens, a grieving widow and a mysterious priestess — these are bleak portents for a mass wedding. As the men and women square up to their wedding night, who will finally prevail? From the acclaimed team who created The Suppliant Women, this is the much-anticipated second instalment of Aeschylus’ lost epic, DANAIDS. Featuring a magnetic chorus of young men, this will be a gripping and moving event. Come see a play that has not been performed since 463 BC.

UK Premiere.


Wed 22 - Sat 25 February


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
