PPCC Theatre production of the Greek tragedy by Euripides featuring five major female roles and an all-female chorus. Free/Open to public.
After ten years of bloody siege, the Trojan War has finally ended. The Trojan Horse worked, and the Grecian armies were victorious, leaving the slaughtered bodies of husbands, fathers, brothers, sons of Troy in their wake. The Trojan Women focuses on the survivors of the war, the women of Troy, who await being divvied up as slaves to the Greek conquerors. A story about the collateral damage and uncomfortable complications of war, this 2,400 year old play continues to haunt and echo through today. A diverse ensemble of PPCC students, including several Combat Veterans and active service members, join guest artist Barbara Summerville to bring this play to life. There will be a Talkback with cast and the director following the matinee on April 21st.
