The Suppliant Women

The Suppliant Women

A group of strong but scared women set sail from their home, leaving everything they have behind. Facing forced marriage, they seek sanctuary in Greece. When they arrive, the King and the people must decide their fate. An ancient story of self and other first performed at the birth of democracy, David Greig’s new English translation of Aeschylus’ text has fresh relevance in 2017. Part play, part ritual, The Suppliant Women reunites the team behind The Events and continues the Young Vic’s Horizons season, exploring the lives of refugees.
