Trojan Women Redux at the Looking Glass Theatre in New York City


Co-Op Theatre East is working with Nomi Network in the fight to end sex slavery and human trafficking. Founded in 2008, Co-Op Theatre East (COTE) creates theatre for social change. COTE provides an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers.

In the modern port city of New York, ten immigrant women are held hostage against their will. A grandmother, once royalty, clings to hope as her remaining children are dragged away. In a radical interpretation of Euripides’ classic play, adapter/director Casey Cleverly modernizes the text to focus on the all-too-contemporary issue of human trafficking. Mixing live drama, news clips, projections, dance, and an original music score, Trojan Women Redux turns the ancient play into a modern day tragedy exploring the real stories of women across the globe.

Featuring: Anna Savant, Lillian Rodriguez, Hannah Rose Barfoot, Michael Rehse, Chris Ryan, Amy Chang, Alison Faye Shelley, Tiff Roma, Samantha Cole, Theresa Christine and Kerrie Bond]
