Frank McGuinness' visceral version of Euripides' tragedy. Read More >

Troy has fallen to the Greeks, and Hecuba, its beloved queen, is widowed and enslaved. She mourns her great City and the death of her husband, but when fresh horrors emerge, her grief turns to rage and a lust for revenge.

A savage indictment of the devastation of war, Hecuba is brought to life in a thrillingly visceral new version by Frank McGuinness.
