Euripides’ anti-war tragedy The Trojan Women is adapted by an all-female cast of Syrian refugees in Queens Of Syria, running for a single week at the Young Vic.

Incorporating their own harrowing experiences and narratives of ferocious war and bitter exile into the ancient Greek text, their plight lends fresh pertinence to the horrors of the classic play.

Telling the tale of the women displaced by the turmoil of Troy, the powerful stage performance is interspersed with scenes from Yasmin Fedda’s award-winning documentary, providing a revelatory opportunity for British audiences to hear first-hand the harsh realities of life as a refugee.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
