Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) presents Trojan Women, a modern multimedia and multilingual adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy. The Trojan Women by Euripides, directed by Olga Levina, JCTC’s Artistic Director. 

A foreign army marches through the defeated city of Troy. They destroy every vestige of civilization left after a brutal war. They’ve slaughtered the men and captured the women, whom they brutally assault and separate from their children. Will the only survivors of Troy be massacred as well? Will the women be forced into marriage or slavery by their conquerors or will they be made to live like refugees in their devastated city, subject to the whims and desires of the occupying soldiers? 

Trojan Woman is that rare work of literature that has gained more power and relevance with time… JCTC’s production of Trojan Women highlights women’s strength, wisdom and compassion and is meant to spark a conversation about the ways “the others” are dehumanized through prejudice, oppression and violence in society. For thousands of years, men have fought wars, but women endure the aftermath, binding the wounds, mopping up the blood and stitching civilization back together. JCTC has brought diverse team of artists from multiple arts disciplines and cultural backgrounds to create Trojan Women for 21st century audiences. Join us at JCTC/Merseles Studios November 2-18; Thursday-Saturday, 8:00-9:30; Sunday, 6:00-7:30
