Trojan Women Tonight!

(Me and my Trojan ladiez.)

March 23 - 25, 29– 31: "The Trojan Women"

Champlain Theatre presents "The Trojan Women." The images are too familiar: an old woman wailing over the corpse of her infant grandson; an adolescent girl sexually abused by a group of male soldiers; a city on fire, its towers crumbled, as the few survivors huddle together in fear and helplessness.

Euripides wrote "The Trojan Women" in 415 B.C.E. and sadly the very images he conjures of women as victims of war ring as true today as they did nearly 2,500 years ago. Intensely emotional, this great Greek tragedy will be brought to life by Champlain Theatre in a technically bare-bones production under the direction of Eric Ronis.

Performed in Champlain College's Alumni Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tickets: $14 for general admission; $5 for Champlain students with I.D. Call 651-5962 to reserve tickets.

Tonight is the preview, general public can pay and free to Champlain students!
