Sophocles' Ajax - Performances Arranged by Prof Boyde

Professor Patrick Boyde (Emeritus Professor of Italian) is now in his tenth year as Fellow Borderer, organising cultural events to bring research students, associates and visitors into regular contact with the Fellowship and the College.

His programme for the Lent Term has come to be dominated by the performance of a play in Ancient Greek, adapted and staged in such a way as to appeal to a varied audience drawn from 40 faculties and 50 different countries.

This year he has chosen Ajax by Sophocles. The trailer not only advertises the two performances in February but gives a vivid impression of his personality and values. It also demonstrates the high quality achieved by the many volunteers who are drawn into all his activities in the metaphorical borders of St John's.
