The Trojans

Mon 16 Sep 2019


A brand new, haunting and uplifting adaptation of Euripides’ great anti-war tragedy, written and acted by a cast of Syrian refugees living in Glasgow, performed in Arabic (with subtitles) and English.

Tickets: £10

The Trojans transcends countries and time, with a cast who have known the horror of war bringing their own experiences of exile and loss into Euripides’ shocking 2,500 year old play; they also tell of the bitter-sweetness of building new lives in Scotland.

This extraordinary production is the culmination of nine months of drama workshops at Platform and is brought to you by the award-winning director Victoria Beesley and the originating producers of the highly acclaimed Queens of Syria (Young Vic 2016) and Syria: The Trojan Women (NCC Amman, 2013), supported by Glasgow City Council.

Adapted by Mariem Omari, with Alaa Saloum and Sanaa Al Froukh including original writing by the cast.

Please note this is a screening of a performance not a live event and will be followed by a live Q&A. 

Ticket prices include one drink (a beer, glass of wine or a soft drink).
