The Young Co. presents Ellen Mclaughlan's modern adaptation of The Trojan Women as their graduation performance in a moving, frightening, and powerful portrayal of Euripides’ Greek classic story about the women of Troy. Being inspired by the situations occurring in Egypt, Syria and Afghanistan and in particular the way women are treated when a country is at war or civilisation has broken down, this play was chosen for its relevance and engaging story.


A wooden horse appears at the gates of Troy with a secret in its belly. For the Trojans, it means a victory, a party, and drunken sleep. For the Greeks, it means that by sunrise, an enemy city will be razed to the ground. Adapted from Euripides’ tragedy, The Trojan Women offers an enduring picture of human fortitude amidst a deeply moving evocation of the horrors of war.

This is an anti-war play. It is a play about women, human relationships, loyalty and classical mythology. It shows a war not in its glory and pomp, but in the desolation of those left behind – the women. However, at its core, it is a play about women who conquer the perils and foolishness of wars waged.
