Daphnis and Chloe

Daphnis and Chloe

Daphnis and Chloe by Longus is thought of as the first novel, written approximately 300 BC, it concerns the young love of Daphnis and Chloe. Both are abandoned as children, found by farmers and grow up to be shepherds. The novel is set against a breath-taking pastoral backdrop, with Daphnis and Chloe being at one with the nature, and as beautiful and unknowing as the land that surrounds them. Such is their innocence that although they long for each other’s company, neither know that the feeling they have towards one another is love. And as that feeling becomes stronger, other forces intercede to prevent their union: pirates, wealth, poverty and seducers plot to separate the potential lovers. Performed by the 3rd year students at RADA, 2014. Directed by Jeremy Mortimer Daphnis and Chloe Hattie Naylor’s adaptation of Longus’ ancient Greek story of two naive young lovers beset by pirates, aided by supernatural forces and the power of love Performed by Final Year actors at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (2014) Storyteller 1 –  Sarah Twomey, Storyteller 2  –  Ellora Torchia, Storyteller 3  –  Anna Krippa, Myrtale, Lamo’s wife  – Eliza Butterworth, Chloe, a Young Sherpherdess –  Lianne Harvey, Pan, a god –  Sarah Twomey, Love, a god – Milli Prus, Nymph –  Milli Prus, Lycaenium, a young woman –  Eliza Butterworth, Dionyosophanes, Lamo’s Master –  Tom Varey, Lamo, a goatherd  –  Joe Blakemore, Rich City Lad 1 – Tom Varey,  Daphnis, a young goatherd –  Jack Colgrave Hirst, Dryas, a shepherd –  Joshua Collins, Megacles, Chloe’s real father  –  Joshua Collins, Philetas, an old man –  Scott Westwood, Astylus, Dionysophanes’s son – Joseph Rain, Gnatho, Astylus’s servant  –  Kyle Winfield, Rich City Lad 2 –  Kyle Winfield For more information on the RADA students go to  http://www.rada.ac.uk/profiles?pg=1 RADA facebook page  www.facebook.com/RoyalAcademyOfDramaticArt Like RADA – Film, TV & Radio Dept: Facebook Page  Follow ...
