    Hecuba at Stage Left Theater
    February 22-March 10, 2019
    Written by Irish Playwright Marina Carr, Directed by Rebecca McNeill

    Troy has fallen. It’s the end of war and the beginning of something else. Something worse. A contemporary retelling of an ancient tale of war, women, and tragedy -- Hecuba, the Queen of Troy, witnesses the destruction of her city, her people, and her family as Agamemnon and the Greek kings return to Greece at the end of the Trojan War.

    As the cries die down after the final battle, there are reckonings to be made. Humiliated by her defeat and imprisoned by the charismatic victor Agamemnon, the great queen Hecuba must wash the blood of her buried sons from her hands, and lead her daughters forward into a world they no longer recognize. Agamemnon has slaughtered his own daughter to win this war. But now another sacrifice is demanded…in a world where human instinct has been ravaged by violence, is everything as it seems in the hearts of the winners and those they have defeated?
