Women Of Troy
Women Of Troy
a city is burning. the last of its men murdered in a savage night. the women await their fate, trophies from a bloody battle that raged for ten years across their land. This is the aftermath of war in all its brutality and despair. euripides' play is set in the days that follow the destruction of Troy by the Greek armies. the end of a bitter war waged by one man determined to punish the wife who shamed him and the people who kept her away. It is an epic Drama of moral struggles of faith, doubt and reason. Through the voices of the women we hear a clear indictment of the futility of war and our human potential for cruelty. the gods are not immune to euripides' acute eye. their cApricious whims highlight the struggles and vulnerabilities of the humans whose fates they control, reminding us that there are greater forces afoot, mysterious and incalculable. This new adaptation of Women of Troy by director Jeremy James offers a rare opportunity to see a full tragic chorus on stage. Twenty-two performers re-enact this powerful text with music, song, puppetry and performance, boldly bringing to life a timeless Troy with its mythological gods and tragic heroes. Zeus will send rain in floods with incessant hail and black tornadoes&infuriate the aegean with waves and whirlpools; let floating corpses jostle down the Gulf; so that Greeks may learn in future to show humility before the gods.
