Starring Kariofillia Karabeti in the role of Hecuba and directed by Sotiris Hadjakis, the anti-war play, The Trojan Women, is continuing its tour and will be making its last stop at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus on Tuesday, 22 September.

In the Achaean military camp, off the coast of the plundered city of Troy, the captive Trojan women grieve with their queen over their misfortune. The survivors are well-aware that they will be offered as gifts to the Achaeans.

The callous conquerors do not hesitate for a second to throw little Astyanax off the wall, sending him to his death.

Troy eventually burns down and the slaves are led to the ships.

One can describe Euripides’ text as a heart-breaking cry for solidarity and humanity.

Earlier performances in Attica: Thursday, 27 August at the Euripides Theatre of Rematia, Sunday, 30 August at the Old Olive Oil Mill in Elefsina, Wednesday, 2 September at the Melina Mercouri Vrachon Theatre
