Women of Troy at Thorington Theatre


The greatest anti-war play ever written.

Join us on 1st July 2022 for Women of Troy at Thorington Theatre. A captivating play which shares the story of the fate of Hecuba, queen of Troy, as well as the many other women who lost sons and grandchildren in the Trojan war with Sparta.
Euripides’s Women of Troy was first performed the year after the Athenians killed all the men and enslaved the women and children on the island of Melos which had wanted to remain neutral in the war with Sparta. In the play, the women of the burning, ran-sacked city of Troy are imprisoned on the beach waiting to be “allocated” to members of the victorious Greek Army and to serve as slaves or concubines. Among them is Hecuba, queen of Troy.

To this day Women of Troy is heralded as one of the greatest anti-war plays ever written.
