Troy, NY – The Theatre Institute at Sage presents a new adaption of Euripides’s The Trojan Women, which will take to the James L. Meader Little Theater stage from February 28-March 2.

Performed by Russell Sage College students, The Trojan Women is a feminist retelling of the great antiwar play, set in a women’s refugee camp along the banks of the Hudson River during an energy crisis, following years of civil war. The story draws on the strength of women facing the devastation of war and its aftermath.

Leigh Strimbeck, artist-in-residence at RSC, adapted The Trojan Women and is also its director. She previously created Mirror, Mirror and I’m Not a Feminist, but… two women focused productions. Strimbeck is the co-founder of WAM Theatre and an associate member of the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble. In addition to its run at Sage, The Trojan Women was also selected to participate in the First Stories Festival by New York's prestigious Phoenix Theatre Ensemble and the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers
