"...under Leah Adcock-Starr’s stellar directing, the audience was glued to their seats for 90 minutes..."Marie Bonfils, Drama In the Hood

"In the times we find ourselves in, critical art like Civic Rep’s The Trojan Women reminds us never to stop asking..."  - Becs Richards, Seattle Weekly

"This “Trojan Women” is a concise and sharp swipe at Euripides’ continuously popular tragedy- Brendan Kiley, Seattle Times

This radical retelling of Euripides' The Trojan Women transports the famous anti-war tragedy to the modern setting of a prison hospital. Both brutal and wickedly funny, Caroline Bird’s adaptation dares us to see ourselves and our time reflected in this ancient story of the women of Troy.
