Greek Theater in SL July 24th and July 25th

Swapping sex and marriage for education, knowledge and wisdom in the 4th century, the character of Hypatia can be read as an emancipated woman “avant la lettre.” Tragically, her life ended prematurely at the brutal hands of a violent mob of Christian monks. Canadian writer Skylar Smythe was so deeply moved when she first discovered Hypatia that she began to read more about her life and death.

After extensive research (carried out in the midst of becoming one of Second Life’s better known poets), Skylar Smythe embarked upon the writing of a play about the life of Hypatia of Alexandria. Not only does she immerse the audience entirely in Hypatia’s character, but she does so in such a way that a modern viewer can entirely relate to an ancient Greek icon.
