Classics Confidential recently went to London to chat with actress and classicist Laura Martin-Simpson about a new theatre production based on ancient stories about the Amazons, ICONS. In 2013 Laura founded Blazon Theatre together with director Rachel Bagshaw, and they were  awarded an Arts Council England Grant for the initial stages of research and development for a play about the Amazons. In this interview, Laura talks about some of the ideas and themes explored in the play, and gives us some behind-the-scenes glimpses of Blazon’s collaboration with writer Paula B. Stanic and others. You can follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates about this production, but for now, follow this link to watch our interview!
