Five desolate Trojan War survivors are waiting to be deported-to be sex slaves to their new, cruel Greek masters. They include the former Trojan Queen Hecuba and her virginal priestess daughter Cassandra, who suffers from hearing voices. These characters embody centuries of suffering, touchingly.
Our adaptation leads the characters to spend their time in a constant state of Post-Traumatic Stress, the aftermath of all war.
We went this to be a Multi-ethnic performance that unravels the grief and pain of women left behind, when everything they have come to love has been destroyed.
The shifting bodies and faces of “Refugee Voices and Trojan Women” reveal stories rarely heard or often forgotten.
We want actors who can do day time rehearsals and don't have self-important egos.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesRehearsals will be twice a week over a number of months
