Ellen McLaughlin's adaptation of The Trojan Women examines the consequences of war and the extremes people will endure to survive in the face of tragedy. This presentational production acknowledges the theater and its devices as part of the world the characters inhabit.

“What shall become of me? I who was the mother of a pride of warriors. Who walked my palace floors on golden sandals amidst the bobbing of plumed fans. Shall I watch at a master’s door, or sit the night watch for his coughing child?...Wind a prating girl’s ringlet around my bony finger to curl her hair? Crawl at my mistress’s feet to hem her gown?...I will hug my rags around me at night and think of the life I had, the city I lost.” (Hecuba)

“And you think I would choose this? To be loathed by the entire world? To be the source of so much misery? I never had a choice. I was the bride of force. Behind every man who took me stood a goddess who steadied his hips and whispered in his ear.” (Helen)
