9781849435048: The Trojan Women

The war is over. Beyond the prison walls, Troy and its people burn. Inside the prison, the city’s captive women await their fate. But their grief at what has been before will soon be drowned out by the horror of what is to come, as the Greek lust for vengeance consumes everything man, woman and baby in its path. This caustic and radical new version of Euripides’ classic tragedy comes from one of the UK’s most exciting young poets, Caroline Bird. It is an intense, gripping look at what happens when the world collapses.

Review:

"Some of the writing is pin-sharp does away with reverence, rips up the rulebook." Telegraph

"This fine new modern-day version by poet Caroline Bird is set in the mother-and-baby unit of a prison. It’s an ingenious idea of sparkling sensitivity." Evening Standard

"Caroline Bird’s new version has both bleak beauty and sardonic humour." Financial Times
