The Trojan Women
The immortal tragedy of Euripides ‘The Trojan Women’ will be performed by Oyuncular Drama Group in International İstanbul Theatre Festival, on 3th and 4th of June, at 20:30, at Üsküdar Tekel Stage.
During the year, the play will be performed in many festivals and at the own stage of Oyuncular Drama Group.
The play which is written and produced in 415 BC reflects the atmosphere of the Peloponnesian War. The play draws intriguing parallelism with today’s world and stands out with its critical stance against war.
The Trojan Women depicts the grief of the women of Troy after their city has fallen and their sons, husbands and lovers have been killed. They lost their hopes and everyting they have and they ended up the rebelling to the Gods.
