Euripides trans Frank McGuinness

Published by Faber & Faber

"Children, lead this old woman outside
A slave like the rest of you,
She once was your queen

Troy has fallen to the Greeks, and Hecuba, its beloved queen, is widowed and enslaved

She mourns her great city and the death of her husband, but when fresh horrors emerge, her grief turns to rage and a lust for revenge

A savage indictment of the devastation of war, Hecuba is brought to life in this thrillingly visceral new version

Hecuba premièred at the Donmar Warehouse, London in September 2004
