Hecuba by Euripides

Cyprus : Hecuba by Euripides

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama 2019

Eros Ammochostos Theatre participates at the Festival for the first time, presenting Euripides’ Hecuba directed by Giorgos Mouaimis, with Annita Santorineou in the homonymous role.

After the fall of Troy, Hecuba has run out of tears. Her poignant adventures as she watches her glory vanish along with the looted city of Troy, and her children killed or enslaved by the conquerors, are not complete until she herself receives the ultimate blow, the murder of her two last children, Polydorus and Polyxena.

The tragedy probes into the limits of human endurance, which becomes superhuman only to end up inhuman. It narrates the tragic destiny of Priam’s wife, who from queen becomes slave, from mother becomes a childless woman and from victim becomes an avenger, by taking Justice into her own hands, when this seems to have been forgotten by both gods and human.
