THE TROJAN WOMEN

Have all the Gods gone mad? What kind of world is this?

Women, help me.

Sing.

In the wake of their devastating defeat, the widowed women of Troy wait to be claimed by their conquerors. Though the war is over, worse may be ahead.

In this new musical adaptation, Euripides’ tragedy speaks truth about war, power and displacement across the centuries.
