THE TROJAN WOMEN
Adapted by Ellen McLaughlin
Directed by Anne Cecelia Haney
The Flea, August 24, 2016 — September 26, 2016
The women of Troy have been sold into slavery. Their husbands are dead, their city destroyed, and it seems as though the gods have forgotten them. As they wait to be taken away, the women grapple with grief, fear and the gravity of total loss. Known as the first anti-war play in the western canon, Euripides’ The Trojan Women presents an enduring message about the consequences of war.
