Euripides' "The Trojan Women" is a cry of anger and despair in answer to the pain and injustice the playwright saw more than two thousand years ago. We see this cry echoed throughout history in tragedy after unspeakable tragedy - from the inhuman acts of cruelty committed during the Holocaust to the systematic devaluing of other peoples through slavery, segregation, and apartheid. We see this same cry echoed in the voices of demonstrators occupying cities across America, demanding equity and justice. Since the show will be performed at Broadway Performance Hall on Capitol Hill, it is an ideal location to continue exploring this topic further. After each performance, quiet will host talkbacks with several social services organizations. Come see art and join in the conversation!
