THE STORY: After ten long years of war, the great city of Troy has fallen. Only the mothers, wives, and daughters of its slaughtered warriors survive. Nothing worse can befall them. Then it does, blow after blow. Their previous lives in ruins, the women find unimagined resources in each other and themselves. THE TROJAN WOMEN is a thousands-year-old tale of courage, resilience, and hope in the face of utter devastation.
