Trojan Women By Euripides Adapted by Jean-Paul Sartre

The play opens at dawn after the sacking of Troy by the Greeks in the famous Wooden Horse episode.  The Trojan women are gathered together in grief and fear.  In quick succession, Hecuba, queen of Troy, encounters her daughter Cassandra, beloved virgin of the god Apollo, now to be used in King Agamemnon’s bed; Andromeda, her son Hector’s wife; and Helen, the woman who launched a thousand ships against Troy.  Through the fates and sorrows of these women, Euripedes creates one of the greatest indictments against war’s terrors and futilities.
