Eagle's Nest Theatre Presents
2019 Melbourne Amphitheatre Tour
Women of Troy, also known as The Trojan Women, is one of Euripides greatest works. It deals with the painful fate of the Trojan women and children after their defeat to the Greek army and the infamous Trojan Horse. It is probably the biggest anti-war play ever written and what makes it even more tragic is that a play written over two thousand years ago is still so relevant today.
As the #me2 movement spirals around the world, it cannot be more appropriate than now to put on this masterpiece, which also addresses the issues of violence against women. This production is beautiful, tragic and unforgettable as we get drawn into Hecuba’s world and with that the world of all the women of troy. The message of the play is brought to life through the actors, movement, music, dance and fire that will create unforgettable images and sounds.
This play evokes questions that are constantly brought up, the believes that are always being questioned and the history of the time where foundations of our human believes stem from.
