    MSUM University Theatre Trojan Women

    Trojan Women

    After ten long years of war, the great city of Troy has fallen. Only the mothers, wives, and daughters of these slaughtered warriors survive. Nothing worse can befall them. Then it does, blow after blow. Their previous lives in ruins, the women find unimagined resources in each other and themselves. The Trojan Women is a thousands-year-old tale of courage, resilience, and hope in the face of utter devastation.
    Directed by Patrick Carriere
