a new version by Nicholas Kilmer from Euripides
Director: Charles Siegel
After the Trojan War Hecuba, former Queen of Troy, is about to be led back to Greece and a life of slavery. She appears to have lost everything, but we humans always seem to have more we can lose. Reaching out to grab us over a span of more than two thousand years, the play includes vivid arguments about how the dictates of religion and politics conflict with our sense of justice and human dignity. An astonishing, elemental play.
