The Trojan Women

directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann

Amy Lee Pearsall as Hecuba with Melissa Johnson as Cassandra in The Trojan Women 

Wide Eyed re-imagines Euripides' THE TROJAN WOMEN, antiquity’s most powerful play about the eternal tragedy of war. This ensemble driven piece brings the ancient text to new life with heart-pounding immediacy inspired by current American military operations. THE TROJAN WOMEN is directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann, founding Artistic Director of Wide Eyed Productions. She sets the universal tale in a postmodern Middle Eastern war zone and aims to not only elucidate the tragedies visited upon a war torn society, but also to celebrate the strength and humanity of the victims. Hoffmann revisits the roots of her company’s creative success by casting Amy Lee Pearsall (Hecuba) in the lead role of a Euripidean tragedy. Euripides’ The Medea, with Pearsall in the title role, was Wide Eyed’s inaugural production in 2007, and the show was met with critical and audience acclaim. Jack Hanley from NYTheatre.com called it "an exhilarating and haunting show,” and went on to confess, “I cried.”
