Trojan Women
Adapted and directed by Alfred Preisser
Original musical score: Kelvyn Bell
Choreography: Tracy Jack

Is there any truth to the Greek concept of tragedy, in which cycles of order and disorder are governed by fate? Are we somehow complicit in the disintegration and violence that is always happening somewhere else? This radical re-envisioning of the Greek classic by Euripides, set in the imagined wreckage of Penn Station, integrates testimony from survivors of recent civil wars in Sierra Leone and Liberia and asks just that.

Director and adapter Alfred Preisser is the Co-Founder and Artistic Director of The Classical Theatre of Harlem. Most recently, Alfred directed Langston Hughes' Black Nativity starring André De Shields at The Duke on 42nd Street.
