Trojan Barbie:
A Car-Crash encounter with Euripides’ Trojan Women
By Professor Christine Evans
Directed by Professor Maya E. Roth
Past and present violently collide as the dreams of women and their fierce hunger for life and creativity are played out in the larger context of war. Bristling with wit, theatricality, and profound poetry, this award-winning play by Australian- born Christine Evans, the Theater & Performance Studies newest faculty member, re-envisions Euripides’ ancient classic as a vivid post-modern encounter across cultures, styles, and genres. This inspired and “explosive new work” (Talkin’ Broadway), resonates deeply with our own global dislocations and the complexities of war.

Playwright Christine Evans will be signing copies of her new anthology War Plays, which includes Trojan Barbie, at the opening night/book launch reception following the Thursday, April 11 performance.
