A podcast episode with Leo Aylen and David Wiles

Leo Aylen, a poet, author, actor, director, broadcaster, and screenwriter, has engaged significantly with classical material over the course of his career. In this podcast episode, he discusses his sell-out production of 'Antigone' at the Greenwich Theatre. His interlocutor is David Wiles, Emeritus Professor of Drama at the University of Exeter, who himself has translated and directed several Greek plays.
