Trojan Women by Euripides

Cyprus : Trojan Women by Euripides

This year's edition of the "International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama” opens with the emblematic, timeless and one of the most important plays of Euripides, Trojan Women, produced by Theatro Ena.

At the Achaeans’ camp outside the looted city of Troy, the captured Trojan women and their queen, Hecuba, lament over their tribulations. Any members of the royal family left alive will become the property of the Achaeans, while Hecuba’s grandson, the young Astyanax, has been thrown from the walls, a victim of the conquerors΄ cruelty. As Troy is destroyed in flames, the desperate women are taken to the ships that will carry them across the Aegean to become slaves in the homes of the Achaeans victors. Human pain takes universal dimensions. The lamentation of women, mothers, spouses and sisters, human and revealing, points once again at the "works" of human nature. A story that (constantly) repeats itself ...
