Production History

The Trojan Women  | Open: 03/15/06 Close: 04/01/06
Poseidon and Athena issue a news bulletin about the fall of the Trojan regime, informing us that tough decisions will have to be made in its wake. Senior correspondent Talthybius deploys award-winning journalists Andromache and Helen to gather hard-hitting facts. Poseiden leads a political roundtable in the style of Charlie Rose. You are the studio audience, called upon to determine the fate of the vanquished.

Through a unique presentation, drawn almost entirely from the Euripides text, this unconventional The Trojan Women shows how the decline of objective, non-participatory press affects our collective awareness of suffering.
