Synopsis: The play is set after ten years of war, with the women of Troy left in the ruins of their country, enslaved by the conquering Greeks and awaiting an uncertain fate. While their men and children are slaughtered, their city destroyed, the women survive the extreme desolation of war with determined nobility. Euripides' plea for peace has spoken to war torn cultures for 2,400 years and still packs a punch.
