April 6 – 8 at 6:45pm

At Blockhouse Bar (formerly Blockhouse Bloomington)

Tickets are $12/each; No one under 21 yrs will be admitted to the evening shows.
The Trojan Women follows the fate of the women of Troy after their city has been attacked, their husbands killed, and as their remaining family members are being enslaved. The show focuses on the Trojan queen Hecuba, her daughter Cassandra, her daughter-in-law Andromache, and the infamous Helen of Troy.
The play’s antiwar message and examination of personal responsibility, misogyny, female agency, and the cruel aftermath of war resonate as strongly today as they did over 2,000 years ago. This richness of theme and text is enhanced by the existentialist condemnation of Asian colonialism brought to the work by Sartre’s adaptation.
MCCT’s production of The Trojan Women will be staged “in the round” with audience members on 3 sides of the stage. Our production will also include 8 original musical pieces adapted from the script and inspired by music from the Ancient World.
Join us at Blockhouse Bar for a memorable night of theatre! Refreshments will be on sale, including wine and beer during the evening shows. Don’t miss out on this classic Greek tragedy!
