Tragedy after Euripides
English text

After the fall of Troy, a humiliated Queen Hecuba stands face to face with the victor, Agamemnon, in a new and terrible reality. Marina Carr’s impressive retelling of Euripides’s tragedy is a powerful play about a complex and suffering (in this version not an avenging) female figure surrounded by violence, death and devastation.
