Violence & broken love amid the horrors of war

RUN TIME: TBA    INTERMISSION: TBA    ACCESSIBLE: Y    AGES: 14+    MEMBER TYPE: School

A city has been shattered by desire. Triumphant after the final battle of the Trojan War, Menelaus comes to take back his wife, Helen, whom he blames for starting the conflict by attracting the Trojan prince Paris. Now, all the women of Troy must face the wrath of the conquering soldiers and must fight for their lives and for their freedom. Written in 415 BC, Euripides' wrenching exploration of violence and broken love mid the horrors of war is a play distrssingly never out of date.

FSPA 2019-20 Season: THE TRIALS OF LOVE

Love should be innocent and pure, but, as Benvolio says in Romeo and Juliet , "Alas, that love, so gentle in is view, / Should be so tyrannical and rough in proof." In this year's DalTheatre season, we will explore the trials of love: the complexities, the agonies, and the confusions that lovers must contend with in their quest toward joy. Join us as we navigate the rough seas of the heart!
