Present and past interweave, the personal and the mythical merge, heroes become monsters, victims become perpetrators, and ultimately the chorus takes the lead.

The historical record is re-examined with a feminist gaze. When mothers get to do the talking, what story will they tell? What’s their take on this never-ending, pointless war? What roles are assigned to them, and what roles would they rather take? We share in the ambitions and visions, fears and yearnings, frustration and rage of Helen, Hecuba, Cassandra, and Andromache.

"Women in Troy, As Told by Our Mothers seamlessly merges subject and form as it tackles big themes without ever losing connection with the human impact."
Theaterkrant

Tiago Rodrigues rewrites classics, adapts novels and combines true stories with fiction. For Women in Troy, As Told by Our Mothers  he drew on various versions of the Troy myth, as well as recent world events and personal experiences from his own life and those of theatre makers and cast members Alesya Andrushevska, Manja Topper, Kuno Bakker, Tomer Pawlicki.
