Win one of three pairs of tickets to the National Theatre’s spectacular new production Welcome to Thebes - a new play by Moira Buffini, courtesy of Ekklesia.

Set in the present day, but inspired by an ancient myth, Moira Buffini’s Welcome to Thebes offers a passionate exploration of an encounter between the world’s richest and poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.

Faced with an impoverished population, a shattered infrastructure and a volatile army, the first democratic president of Thebes promises peace to her nation. Without the aid of the leader of the vastly wealthy state of Athens, she doesn’t stand a chance. But he is arrogant, mercurial and motivated by profit.

If you would like to win two tickets for the performance, email with the subject line: "Ekklesia Competition" and the answer to the following question: "Who is the director of Welcome to Thebes?"

The winners will be picked at random.

Prize consists of 2 tickets to see Welcome to Thebes at the National Theatre. Tickets will be valid for Monday – Friday evening performances until 29 July subject to availability. Prize does not include transport. Promoter reserves the right to substitute prizes for that of an equal or greater value if necessary. Competition closes 30 June 2010.
