About: The Women of Troy

Amidst the slaughter and ruins of Troy, the women wait to be handed out to the victors. Hecuba, Queen of Troy, must confront both a bleak future and Helen, the woman who brought this humiliation to them all. From despair, an all-female ensemble move towards hope and fortitude, through means of a dramatic fusion of text, movement and music.

Ricky Dukes, recent recipient of the Fringe Report’s Best Artistic Director Award for his leadership of Lazarus Theatre Company, looks to Women of Troy to explore the challenge of finding dignity and strength when choice and faith are gone, exploring modern parallels to Euripides’ timeless story of the barbarism of war.

Already well-known to Blue Elephant audiences for their reinvigorated and stylish productions of Shakespeare, Schiller and Webster, Lazarus Theatre Company bring their strong, ensemble-based take on Greek drama to Camberwell for the first time.


“Ricky Dukes’ inventive direction…succeeds in making this 2000 year old play feel fresh” (Whatsonstage on "Hecuba")
