Created and performed by SITI Company
Directed by Anne Bogart
Adapted by Jocelyn Clarke

“Anne Bogart and her acclaimed SITI Company have unearthed the vital, immediate drama within this classic. The result is essential viewing”
—Variety

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. Jocelyn Clarke's Trojan Women (After Euripides), a highly modernized adaptation of Euripides' enduring drama, takes place that grim morning, as the women of Troy await their fate amid a wasteland of carnage. Innovative director Anne Bogart and members of SITI Company approach the tale from a contemporary perspective, exploring the universal struggle to move forward in the face of tragic, crippling loss.

Composed by Christian Frederickson
Lighting design by Brian H Scott
Scene design by James Schuette
Costume design by Melissa Trn

SITI Company's production of Trojan Women was commissioned by the J. Paul Getty Museum and first presented at the Getty Villa in Los Angeles, California, in September, 2011
