Trojan Women by Howard Colyer at Jack Studio Theatre
Nameless Theatre Company presents Trojan Women, based on Seneca’s adaptation of Euripides’ play, freely adapted by Howard Colyer, at the Jack Studio Theatre, a fringe venue in Brockley, south London, from 15 Jan to 2 Feb 2013.
Directed James Farrell, designed by Libby Todd, lighting by Steve Lowe, sound by Max Pappenheim. Starring Jacquie Crago (Hecuba, Queen of Troy)
About people living under the shadow of death, the morality of revenge and the hypocrisy of war. Troy has fallen. The city has been destroyed and its people slaughtered. The few survivors are prisoners of the Greek Army which is waiting to sail back to Greece. The army is disintegrating in the wake of its victory, but the killing continues. The fate of the prisoners hangs in the balance. War doesn’t end when the fighting stops.
