The Trojan Women

The Trojan WomenThe Trojan Women

Adapted and Directed by Leigh Strimbeck

Euripides’ play follows the fates of a group of women after their city has been sacked, their husbands killed, and any remaining family members doomed to enslavement. In this new steampunk, dystopian adaptation, the women of Troy are living in the aftermath of war in a refugee camp abandoned by protection and authority. As their conquerors send missives about death sentences for their children, the women must decide whether to listen to the raving Cassandra, or take matters into their own hands as they lament the loss of the land that reared them: the city of Troy.
