In Marina Carr’s reimagining of the legend of HECUBA, Troy has fallen. It’s the end of war and the beginning of something worse. As the cries die down after the final battle, there are reckonings to be made. In this American Premiere production, celebrated Off-Broadway director and Skidmore Alum Ian Belton steers a course headlong into the ultra-violent slaughter, highlighting uncanny parallels to not only geo-politics but our own notions of gender, race and religion. In a world where human instinct has been ravaged by violence, is everything as it seems in the hearts of the winner and those they have defeated?
This production was directed by celebrated Off-Broadway director and National Endowment for the Arts Fellow Ian Belton.
