After 10 years of war, Troy lays in ruin and the Trojan Army has been defeated. Among the devastation, the Trojan Women, led by Queen Hecuba, await their fates at the hands of the Greek army. As the Greeks’ verdict draws near, each woman copes in a different way—some strive to save what is left of Troy, others mourn and speculate about the future, and some even plot revenge. Meanwhile, the Greeks, led by King Menelaus, struggle to determine the fates of each of the women, of the the sole heir to the Trojan throne, and of Helen, the one at the center of the decade long war.
A story of gods, kings and queens, murder, and revenge, The Trojan Women explores the devastating effects of war and violence as well as of the difficulties that persist following a war’s conclusion with themes that are applicable to this day.
This show explores themes of war; while not filled with gore or explicit physical violence, it may be a trigger for those sensitive to violent themes.
