Abstract

A surprisingly young audience whooped with perverse pleasure at the end of the harrowing Women Of Troy which I went to see at the National last night. It was one of the best bits of war reporting I have seen for a long time. Euripides’ 2,500 year-old drama tells the story of the Trojan women after the fall of their City as the Greeks decide whether to kill, enslave or torture the babies, children and women that remain. They pretty much do all three.
