Natalie Haynes Stands Up For The Classics: Sappho
Join Natalie Haynes and guests for half an hour of comedy and the Classics from the BBC Radio Theatre in London.
Natalie is a reformed comedian who is a little bit obsessive about Ancient Greece and Rome.
Today she stands up in the name of Greek poet, Sappho, about whom we know so little- and most of what we think we know is made-up. But one thing is certain: her poetry is scorching, and unforgettable. There will also be a lot of gossip from over a thousand years ago.
With special guests novelist Stella Duffy, classicist Professor Edith Hall and music from LiTTLe MACHiNe.
