A world at war, a world ablaze and all its men savagely murdered, Hecuba, Queen of Troy is forced to stare into a world in which women are the spoils of war, a world full of pain, disease and persecution.
She must learn how to survive and give security, encouragement and joy to the very people who look to her as mother of the nation. From despair, an all-female ensemble moves towards hope and fortitude, through means of a dramatic fusion of text, movement and music.
New production by the Lazarus Theatre Company
