The Syrian War meets Greek tragedy

A timely reminder of the horrors of war, this gala performance adaptation of Euripides' The Trojan Women amalgamates the Greek tragedy with the cast's very own, very personal experiences of fleeing the war in Syria. The play was first staged in Amman in 2013, and the subject of a hard-hitting documentary - the footage of which is skillfully woven into the narrative through video projection. A harrowing real-life anti-war production, this provocative work is staged for one night only.

The all-female cast are themselves refugees from the vicious war that is still raging in Syria, and their personal experiences of their hard-won safety provide a stark and real reminder of the most vulnerable casualties of conflict.
