Unmasked Theatre present: The Trojan Women
War has come. What you know, it is no more.
A new take on Euripides’ classic drama, Unmasked Theatre revive their debut production, The Trojan Women. In a post-nuclear fall-out, with a clinical enemy clearing/dispersing the country, the surviving women wait. An aging MP tries to keep her remaining constituents and her family together, a mother searches for her lost child, and a normality is desperately searched for.
Through physical theatre, devised choral work and a collage of war related text, the production aims to challenge the distance felt from the crisis facing refugees around the world, and ask what if it happened here, to us, now?
Adapted and directed by Pip O’Neill and Luke Ofield.
