The Riverside Theatre Company returns to Edinburgh to take on this Euripides classic. Drawing on contemporary and mythic ideas, this unmissable production of The Trojan Women explores the impact of war, the aftermath of destruction and the rise of broken voices. Mourning for the lives they once knew, women are left alone with their grief, fearful for what the future holds. Using movement, song and physicality, this poignant anti-war play highlights the courage and resilience of these women as they fight for freedom in a world where men have long waged war.
