As bleak and agonizing a portrait of war as ever to appear on the stage, The Trojan Women is a masterpiece of pathos as well as a timeless and chilling indictment of war's brutality. The only justice in war, Euripides seems to say, is punitive and nihilistic. Nicholas Rudall's compelling new translation continues his acclaimed work in interpreting classical drama for today's audiences.
