Ricky Dukes brings Euripides's classic to life with his trademark physical style. Read More >

Women Of Troy After Euripides is set amidst the slaughter and ruins of Troy, as 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, award-winning Artistic Director 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.

Lazarus Theatre Company are already well-known to Blue Elephant audiences for their reinvigorated and stylish productions of Shakespeare, Schiller and Webster, plaudits for which include Broadway World’s Best Fringe Production Award (Othello, 2010). This is the first time the company has presented Greek drama at the Blue Elephant but their strong, ensemble-based adaptations of Euripides’ work elsewhere in London have received great praise.
