"Troy is in ruins. Its men are dead. Its women are captives and the victorious Greeks are camped in the ashes preparing to sail home. Four quarrelling women drawn together by grief - Four exhausted soldiers who hate each other's guts - A King who falls for a girl so mad she can see the audience - A teenage princess dreaming of the Underworld - And a lonely man of conscience trying to get it all down on paper - "

Review quote

"Glyn Maxwell's drama does not so much conflate the two great tragedies of loss and revenge ["Women of Troy" and "Hecuba" but rather alights, magpie-like, on what is shiny in each to create a brand new play" -Lyn Gardner, "Guardian"
