"I have a scream I have to let out. I want the world to hear it."

A group of Syrian women, now refugees exiled in Jordan, create an extraordinary modern retelling of Euripides’ Trojan Women.

In film and on stage, the women courageously explore parallels between the ancient Greek tragedy and the catastrophe of today’s civil war. Their first-hand experience of a country in turmoil mirrors the Trojan women they portray, displaced and enslaved by war.

Set against the backdrop of Yasmin Fedda’s award-winning documentary, this moving production plays for the first time at the Young Vic before coming to the Assembly Roxy.
