Glenbard North to put on classic Greek tragedy 'The Women of Troy' March 10-12

Glenbard North High School's theater program will present their winter studio, "The Women of Troy" by Euripides and adapted by David Grote.

The powerless but still defiant women of the defeated city of Troy - now the spoils of war - wait for the Greeks to decide their fate.

Hecuba, the fallen Queen, now must lead her people into an unknown and terrifying world. The play is a protest against the way Athens treated the rights of women. Adapted by Grote, the play explores the essence of human dignity and questions how one stays hopeful in the face of turmoil.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, March 10 and 12, and 4 p.m. Friday, March 11, in the Little Theatre at Glenbard North, 990 N. Kuhn Road in Carol Stream.
