No man's land; between the shattered walls of Troy and the tents of the victorious Greeks, Hecuba, Queen of Troy, waits to be distributed and sail away to a sorrowful destiny. While she waits she hears of her relative's destinies and witnesses the cruelty of her captors; Troy's men and children have been brutally slain, leaving its women to serve them like dogs. But buried deep within the misery and grief, a ray of hope in the human spirit shines and Euripides proves that no-one wins in war. Considered Euripides most tragic piece, Women of Troy is a dark piece of theatre with a strong anti-war message.
