The Trojan Women

 Friday Jan 20 2012, 8pm-5am
Location:Alumnae Theatre
Address:70 Berkeley St.
"The darkness is hungry; it eats the stones."
"The Trojan Women" is a classic anti-war drama by the ancient Greek playwright Euripides. Canadian poet Gwendolyn MacEwen breathed new life into the text in the 1970's, using modern vocabulary to explore stereotypical female roles, feminism and women's rights.
Alumnae Theatre previously staged MacEwen's translation in the 1992/93 season - Molly Thom, who now plays the lead role of Hecuba (Queen of Troy), appeared in the Chorus in the earlier production.
This one is directed by Alexandra Seay, who uses a timeless feel and choral singing to illuminate the struggles of these women who “live beneath the shadows of men”.

Run dates: January 20 - February 4, 2012.

Tickets: 2-for-1 Wed; $20 Thu/Fri/Sat; PWYC Sun.
