Queens of Syria
Young Vic | 05 – 09 July

“I have a scream…. I want the world to hear it.”

A group of Syrian women, now refugees exiled in Jordan, create an extraordinary modern retelling of Euripides’ Trojan Women.
In film and on stage, the women courageously explore parallels between the ancient Greek tragedy and the catastrophe of today’s civil war. Their first-hand experience of a country in turmoil mirrors the Trojan women they portray, displaced and enslaved by war.

The show is performed in Arabic with English subtitles.

Performances Tuesday – Saturday: 7.45pm
Saturday matinees: 2.45pm
Running Time: 1 hour 30 mins

Tickets £10
