Samira and Amina Jusic, two devout Muslim women, find themselves in a Serbian detention camp for Muslim women in the midst of the Balkan Wars (1990s). Sixteen Serbian soldiers have been killed by a car bomb at the local fuel depot. One of the women in the camp is responsible, and the Serbs will use whatever interrogation tactic necessary to find the culprit. Jules Tasca’s update of Euripides’ The Trojan Women is a dynamic meditation on the power of family ties in the midst of the Balkan Wars. The play pits men against women, Serbs against Bosnians, and Christians against Muslims. The unforgettable outcome will leave you breathless.
PLAY CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT (violence, language, sexual intimidation). Recommended for ages 14 and above.
