Trojan Women

Trojan Women was produced as a part of the Wall to Wall Theatre Festival which features theatre pieces in unconventional spaces. Ellen McLaughlin's translation of Euripides' haunting play about the fall of Troy and the mistreatment of its women was performed on an exposed, tri-level lobby staircase and seat the audience on the ground level. The positioning allowed for both a literal elevating of powerful female figures in the face of adversity as well as an opportunity to explore and represent the tumultuous shift of power after the trauma of war in a literal manner.
