Women of Trachis at TAU!
The Women of Trachis, a tragedy by Sophocles, is featured in the TAU studential theater (fourth year students this time) this week and the next. The TAU Romeo and Juliet was atrocious, yes, but Arcadia was superb, and I can't risk my reputation as a Greek Father by passing by a Sophocles production, can I?

So, tomorrow (Monday) or the day after that1, 20:30. Tickets are 45 NIS, or 25 NIS for students. Who's coming?

update: We're going Tuesday. 20:30 at TAU. Sign up here or by calling me.

1 <ObHebrewSupremacyRemark>Ye Non-Hebrew speakers: Hebrew has an elegant word for the-day-after-tomorrow, in the lovely dual number. It also has a word for the-day-before-yesterday. So there.</ObHebrewSupremacyRemark>

ObHebrewInconsistencyRemark: Yes, but the word for day-before-yesterday is not in the lovely dual form...

Just back from "The women of Trachis"

Much worse than their Romeo and Juliet, though the costumes are better (in my opinion). Can't wait to read your review. ;)

Worse?! Arrgh! Why are they doing this to me? O Zeus, cruellest of gods!

You realize the predicament I'm in: I just can't not go to a Sophocles production!

Best news I've heard all week. Ijon is amusing when he's cranky.

Ijon has not read said translation, only watched it performed. The performance was superb, and he did not wince at the translation, which is a lot in this case. But he hasn't read it.

You can find it in the Proza-Modan bookshop in Dizengoff. It's good. But not very good. And Stoppard demands very good, I think.

Norwegian has a word for the day after tomorrow and the day after that too. And the day before yesterday too. So there! No dual forms though. According to an old book I read somewhere dual forms are a sign of a very erotic language.

The theatre students of TAU seems to be very busy!
