The Women of Troy

After Euripides
by Lazarus Theatre Company

Fresh from winning the Best Artistic Director Award 2012 from Fringe Report, Ricky Dukes and his Lazarus Theatre Company brings to life this heartfelt, passionate & emotive play about human survival.

Tuesday 20 March 2012 - Saturday 14 April 2012
Wednesday matinees
4pm on the 4th & 11th of April

A world at war, a world ablaze and all its men savagely murdered, Hecuba, Queen of Troy is forced to stare into a world in which women are the spoils of war, a world full of pain, disease and persecution.

She must learn how to survive and give security, encouragement and joy to the very people who look to her as mother of the nation. From despair, an all-female ensemble moves towards hope and fortitude, through means of a dramatic fusion of text, movement and music.

You can keep you up to date with all the goings on direct from the rehearsal room and stage on their blog:

“Lazarus Theatre Company ... effectively conveys a sense of the epic ... which succeeds in making this 2,000 year old play feel fresh”.

“Lazarus Theatre Company deserves every praise for staging classical and early modern drama with style and panache"
