The Students Acting Shakespeare Society (SASS) is proud to present "The Greeks Have No Devil", a play based on the novel "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt.

 

At a Vermont college in the early 1980s, six Greek students and their eccentric professor band together to study ancient mysteries and murder one of their own in the process.

 

Narrator Richard Papen is enthralled by his classmates and their strange ideas about life and academia. He makes fast friends with the charismatic group leader Henry, flamboyant Francis, outgoing Charles, beautiful and aloof Camilla and the friendly but overbearing Bunny, whose jealousy ends up getting the better of him.

 

Their Greek professor Julian Morrow encourages the group live life to the fullest, no matter the consequences, as Richard's academic advisor Prof. Laforgue and his fellow student Judy Poovey look on in worry.

 

SASS was first established in 2017 by a group of students from University of Vienna's department for English and American Studies. They started off performing in productions of Shakespearean classics, soon branching out to include modern plays and showcases of their acting, improv and musical talents as well. "The Greeks Have No Devil" presented a new and unique challenge to the group as it is their first original adaption of a text for the stage.
