Youth-Led Play – The Trojan Women


23 – 30 April 2022

Facing men with machine guns and a world that really doesn’t want to know, the Trojan Women are not just mythic figures of the past as they chant “Bread, Work, Freedom”! (Afghan Women’s chant “NON COR ASADEE” if spelt phonetically)

More than a theatre production, “The Trojan Women” by Euripides and adapted by the DTC cast is a call to action to deny legitimacy to anyone that would dehumanise women.

The production is a result of research and linking the original text to current day situations. It is performed by a cast from Daramalan student members of the company; it also involves professional and tertiary level players who are past members of the DTC. 

Ancient Script, Current Context, Post Modern Production

With a text written over two and a half thousand years ago, the content is being replayed in real life in some parts of the world at an alarming rate. Now, Art, theatre, education and civil responsibility morph into a distillation of concepts on a small stage in the Old Chapel Studio at Daramalan College as The Daramalan Theatre Company (DTC) brings to light the age-old struggle of women in war and its aftermath. Some would see it as a post-modern work. But we are left with the question: “So what are you going to do about it?”

Daramalan Theatre Company is attempting to awaken awareness while issuing a call to action.
