Savio(u)r Theatre Company presents THE TROJAN WOMEN by Euripides, translated by Brendan Kennelly and directed by Tim Sullivan at The Cock Tavern Theatre from 21 Nov – 11 Dec 2010.
And what is love? And where is love?
We have grown so used to murder
we no longer hear the cries.
Love is murdered here today.
That’s how a city dies.
An epic indictment of the horrors of war, The Trojan Women remains one of the most powerful and heartbreaking tragedies of all time. In this innovative production, American and British actors will portray two colliding superpowers, as the women of Troy face an uncertain future amidst the ruins of their fallen city.
Dedicated to uniting British and American artists, Savio(u)r Theatre Company is pleased to be presenting The Trojan Women following their production of the world premiere of the award-winning At the Broken Places at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. The company has brought a unique blend of British-American perspectives through mixed casts in Twelfth Night, or What You Will at the Courtyard Theatre, Sarah Kane’s Crave at Camden People’s Theatre, A Doll’s House Revisited, a comedic reinvention of Ibsen’s classic, at the Etcetera Theatre, and a multi-cultural, music-infused take on the quintessential American play, Our Town, at Camden People’s Theatre.
Cast includes: Jenna Berk, Zack Chaykin, Nicola Davis, Sam Freeman, Kate Glover, Rebecca Hilsdon, Dotty Kultys, Dubem Nuabe, Lydia Outhwaite, Leanne Rivers, Zoë Swenson-Graham, Ian Taylor, and Zoë Teverson.
