After the fall of Troy, the defeated Trojan women await their fate and mourn their dead. Their city is in ruins and Hecuba, Andromache, and Cassandra expect to become Greek slaves. They attempt to protect their children and avenge their husbands by imperiling Helen, whom they blame for causing the war. One of the most admired ancient Greek plays, this 2400-year-old anti-war work from Euripides still resonates today.
