While beginning to develop a new project, By Jove collaborate with UCL and the Institute of Classical Studies to produce one-off poetry events Homer’s Womenand Weaving Women’s Storiesrespectively.

This talented, young company is providing the kind of quality fringe theatre usually absent from South London’s SW postcodes. It’s women only, and as they unite in ecstatic transcendence, Agave begins to lose her grip on reality. Re-interpreting 'The Art of Coarse Acting' with a farcical result, it's time to guess WhoDunWhat and how.

Weds 9 Mar 2022 | 16:00 | Wickham Theatre, Bristol | Free admission, reserve via Eventbrite | Masks and a negative lateral flow test are expected upon entry. Free Bets are paid as Bet Credits and are available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. By Jove is founded by the collective cast and crew of Electra-Orestes, a piece commissioned by Royal Holloway Classical Society. It’s usually associated with bluff and hearty males from the nineteenth and early twentieth century, which seems to have been its heyday. This form seemed particularly apt for the moment of a global pandemic; indeed, Theatre of War’s digital Oedipus Project has already touched on that play’s backdrop of plague and pestilence as the most obvious touchstone for recent events.

World Wide Words tries to record at least a part of this shifting wordscape by featuring new words, word histories, words in the news, and the curiosities of native English speech. Theatre, an art form and industry that has traditionally relied on the gathering of a (sometimes large) group of people in close quarters, has naturally been hit hard by the global coronavirus crisis. The Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in the Reception of the Ancient World (AMPRAW) commission a new version of Euripides’ Bacchaefor performance at Senate House library in November. This approach will make mythology interesting for those who have already read too many standard mythology books and may make remembering the myths easier as it ties them to words the reader may already know.In Elizabethan times, the exclamation “by Jove” was being used both as a mild euphemistic oath and as a reference to the Roman god. It is a big help to everyones memory who had latin and or greek in his schooldays a long time ago and more.
