Description

My name is Praxias the Athenian and any man of good taste will tell you what a great actor I am. I have faithfully served god Dionysus for many decades and now, as I approach the end of my days, eager to share my divine skills with the common people, I am on a grand farewell tour here in Epirus, a land of glorious cities and smart audiences.

Highlights

  • Singing in the City of Victory

    1. Singing in the City of Victory

    It is always a thrill visiting Nicopolis. The divine Augustus must have been guided by the gods themselves when he chose this location to set up his camp against Antony and Cleopatra and when he founded his city.
  • Pocket theater

    2. Pocket theater

    What men expect is not brought to pass, but a god finds a way to achieve the unexpected. This line by Euripides captures my feelings regarding this vile betrayal. May Dionysus punish those who disrespect his servants.
  • The art of politics

    3. The art of politics

    The theater is truly one of the most important buildings in any Greek city. Even in this mosquito-infested land, the people spared no expense in their desire to acquire all the elements of a superior urban civilization.
