The Trojan Women

  • Capitol Hill Arts Workshop 545 7th Street Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

Assistant Director of The Trojan Women with Taffety Punk's Riot Grrrls.

Written by Euripides, Translated by Edith Hamilton, Directed by Kelsey Mesa

"More than all the works in classical literature, this play is the first form of anti-war activism. Euripides' unique script focuses not on the heroes of war but on their victims. These are the people who are too often lost, even now, in our coverage of war. Even in times of peace, they walk among us privately enduring their loss and devastation. The Riot Grrrls, ever provocative theatre makers, choose this play to ask if we are willing to engage with the dispossessed."
