Written by Euripides

Translation by William Arrowsmith

Directed by Andrea J. Dymond

An epic tale of loss and revenge.  At the start of the war King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy send their youngest son, Polydorus, to an  ally and friend for sanctuary. Ten years later Troy has fallen, Priam is dead and dethroned Hecuba is forced to sacrifice her daughter.  When her beloved son’s body is washed ashore Hecuba is driven to exact punishment. The Trojan War represents the loss of civility, decency, mercy and ultimately, humanity that all wars engender.
