I just learned that the Players Club of Swarthmore is staging a performance of Euripides’ Trojan Women.

Directed by Joseph Southard

January 23, 24, 30, 31, 2009 at 8:00 p.m.

Admission $10

The captive women’s lament over the sack of Troy and their imminent degradation as slaves; queen Hecuba’s proud defiance of her captors; Cassandra’s unheeded dark prophesies; Andromache’s witnessing of her infant son’s death; Helen’s brazen attempt to ingratiate herself with her wronged husband Menelaus and so escape death; all have an eerie modernity and an unaltered power to move us.

For all audiences.

The Players Club is located within walking distance of Swarthmore College. For directions, click here.
