ARTWORK BY RICHARD HILLIARD

In the ruins of their smoldering city, the women of Troy, still grieving over the slaughter of their husbands and sons, wait to learn what the conquerors will do with them. One of the greatest plays to meditate on the limits and power of individual choice, the costs of war on civilians and families, and the boundaries of humanity, this timeless work by Euripides has found new life on the world’s stages in recent years. Mediating between the ancient world and the modern, it explores the choices left to war’s victims. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.

Contains adult themes. The Trojan Women is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
