The war is over but the violence continues.
In a new version of Euripedes’ Greek classic, one of Ireland’s great contemporary playwrights, Frank McGuinness, explores the tragedy beyond war’s end. Hecuba-widow to the defeated Trojan king and slave to the conquering Greek King Agamemnon-has lost her country and most of her family. When she learns of the death of her last surviving children, Hecuba can no longer cope with the unspeakable horrors forced upon her, and is consumed by her rage and quest for revenge.
