“The past folded uneasily into the present”
VCDS is pleased to present Trojan Barbie. Part contemporary drama, part homage to Euripides’ Trojan Women, Trojan Barbie recasts the legendary fall of the city of Troy against the vivid reality of modern warfare. Past and present violently collide when Lotte, an English tourist, is captured while on a tour of current-day Troy and flung back into the ancient women’s camp of Euripides’ Trojan Women. Poetic, compassionate, and tinged with great warmth and humour, Trojan Barbie is an epic yet modern war story with a most unlikely heroine. This play recasts the legendary fall of Troy against the vivid reality of contemporary warfare. It combines ancient Greek drama and modern malaise, sex and death, beauty and power, grief and rage. Moreover, Trojan Barbie also tells an engrossing story about women and their crucial place in both the past and present.
