Following its appearance at the Young Vic, Queens Of Syria now heads on tour and this culminates in a one-off appearance at the West End’s New London Theatre.
The show takes the classic Euripides’ tragedy The Trojan Woman and transposes its themes of a suffering populace to the Syrian crisis, focusing on female Syrian refugees whose struggles will be contrasted and meshed with those in the Euripides text, which focused on the inhabitants of Melos and their treatment by Athenians.
The cast consists entirely of female Syrian refugees and they perform onstage in a play that also features documentary footage, which will create a truly extraordinary show. This is event theatre at its best and will offer a poignant and unmissable insight into something that is in the spotlight regularly.
The show is directed by Zoe Lafferty and there is no doubt she will bring a powerful voice to the production, having previously helmed numerous shows with a political edge. It will make this one of the big talking points of the London theatre scene in July.
It appeared at the Young Vic earlier in the year, with a tour that takes it to Oxford, Brighton and Edinburgh, amongst others. It then has its special gala performance at the West End’s New London Theatre – the ongoing home of Show Boat - on Sunday 24th July 2016.
