Refugee Voices and Euripides' The Trojan Women

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Refugee Voices and Euripides’ The Trojan Women.

A modern dress version of the ancient Greek drama about the effects of Trojan War on women survivors.

Multi Ethnic Theater (MET) presents Refugee Voices and Euripides’ The Trojan Women, a modern staging of The Trojan Women, Euripides’ classic tragedy about the plight of the women who survived the Trojan War.

The play is directed by Lewis Campbell and runs September 27-October 21 at Royce Gallery Playhouse, 2901 Mariposa Street in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Euripides wrote The Trojan Women two and a half millennia ago about captive women in the aftermath of a war. In this modern dress version, director Lewis Campbell has collected “refugee voices” from several modern conflicts, as far back as World War II, as recent as today’s Middle East. All the stories are factual. Refugee Voices and Euripides’ The Trojan Women is as relevant today as the stories Euripides told. Many modern refugees sneaked through forests to escape, others walked for miles across mountains in the dead of winter, still others crossed battle lines in the heat of high summer. Campbell points out that, today, there are over 65 million persons displaced by conflicts around the world. Euripides understood their plight more than 2,500 years ago.
