What is it?
Troy has fallen. The city has been destroyed and its people slaughtered. The few survivors are prisoners of the Greek Army which is waiting to sail back to Greece. The army is disintegrating in the wake of its victory, but the killing continues. The fate of the prisoners hangs in the balance. War doesn’t end when the fighting stops.
Based on Seneca’s adaptation of Euripides’ play, Nameless Theatre’s production of Trojan Women is about people living under the shadow of death, the morality of revenge and the hypocrisy of war.
Trojan women will be performed by a cast of twelve led by Jacquie Crago as Hecuba, Queen of Troy. Jacquie has also appeared in The Crucible as Elizabeth Proctor, and Lettice and Lovage as Lotte (Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham).
