Three Crows starts off their season with THE TROJAN WOMEN, Euripides’s classic Greek tragedy that explores the aftermath of the Trojan War and the resilience of the women left behind. This modern retelling was adapted by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1967, and translated by Ronald Duncan. Directed by Katherine Siegel, THE TROJAN WOMEN runs September 28-October 15th at the Piven Theatre Workshop (927 Noyes St) in Evanston. Tickets are available online at ThreeCrowsTheatre.com or by calling 312-469-0274. The press performance is September 28th at 7:30pm.
The cast for THE TROJAN WOMEN includes Judith Laughlin (Hecuba), Ian Michael Smith (Talthybios), Andi Earles (Cassandra), Selena Lopez (Andromache), Julia Badger (Helen), Nathaniel Negron (Menelaus), Kathryn Miller (Pallas Athena), Jessica Fisher (Chorus Leader), Arlicia McClain (Chorus), Anna Marck (Chorus), Heather VanderWielen (Chorus), Lauren Knutson (Chorus), and Quinn Thompson (Astyanax).
The Trojan War has been raging for 10 years. Troy is burning. The city has been ransacked. The men have been killed. The remaining women and children are to be enslaved by the conquering Greek army. Held in limbo, Queen Hecuba and the women of Troy await their fates as refugees. The classic anti-war tragedy, written by Euripides thousands of years ago, has never been more relevant. THE TROJAN WOMEN continues to question and examine the aftermath of war.
“This particular adaptation of THE TROJAN WOMEN is equally heartbreaking, poetic, and funny,” said director Katherine Siegel. “The Sartre adaptation is rarely performed any longer and we are thrilled to be able to bring this moving script to the stage.”
The production team for THE TROJAN WOMEN includes stage manger Tess Naval, lighting designer Christopher Bennett, costume designer SR Negron, sound designer Samuel FitzwaterButchart, and set designer Nathaniel Negron.
