The war is over. Beyond prison walls, Troy and its people burn.
 
Inside the prison, the city’s captive women await their fate. Stalking the antiseptic confines of its mother and baby unit is Hecuba, the fallen Trojan queen. But her grief at what has been before will soon be drowned out by the horror of what is to come, as the Greek lust for vengeance consumes everything – man, woman and baby – in its path.
 
This radical new version of Euripides’ classic tragedy comes from one of the UK’s most exciting young poets – Caroline Bird. Directed by the Gate’s Artistic Director Christopher Haydon, it is an intense, gripping look at what happens when the world collapses.
