An outdoor live production with a real live audience!
This searing drama by Euripides follows the dangerous trajectory from grief to vengeance. Hecuba, the Queen of fallen Troy, is about to be taken away as a slave to Greece. She has lost almost her entire family, but one final injustice turns her from hunted, to hunter. Against the backdrop of duplicitous politicians, a shaky democracy and greed, this production will fuse classical Greek theatre with a contemporary edge.
Presented with support from the UNH department of Classics, Humanities and Italian.
The performance site is located in the open area between the two wings of the Paul Creative Arts Center. Signs will be posted in several areas around the building to guide audience to the location.
