TROJAN WOMEN

About The Show:

Euripides' Trojan Women presents the shattering image of a ruined civilization, whose survivors (women all) wait amid the wreckage to find out which conquering hero will be assigned responsibility for their inevitable enslavement, rape, and murder. CTH's adaptation is completely new, featuring modern music composed specially for the production, dance, and the vivid and harrowing accounts of the survivors of Sierra Leone, Somalia, and Bahgdad. This new adaptation of Trojan Women, adapted and staged by CTH Artistic Director Alfred Preisser, is a direct expression of the wide spread destruction that is always happening "somewhere else", which at the same time gives voice to the essential character of the ancient play.
