Considered one of the best anti-war dramas ever written, “The Trojan Women” tells one of the most moving stories from Greek mythology as Queen Hecuba, her daughter Cassandra, and her daughter-in-law Andromache wait outside the ravaged city of Troy to learn their fate as slaves of their Greek conquerors. These Trojan women are part of the widowed remnant of the devastating ten-year siege of their city.
Hecuba is played by junior Logan Creasman, Andromache by sophomore Zoë DePrez and Cassandra by senior Julie Hoagland-Sorensen. The god Poseidon gets into the act, played by senior Aaron Robertson. Helen, whose abduction began the Trojan War, is played by junior Shannon McDavid.
The chorus of Trojan women are portrayed by juniors Priscilla Diaz, Sophia Higginbottom, sophomore Megan Day, and first-year students Morgan Hogenmiller, Nana Ichikawa, Kara Jackson, Francesca Mouery and Megan Odell.
The Greek herald Talthybius is played by sophomore Griffin Baer. The Greek warriors are played by senior Kyle Gasaway, junior Dominic Pfister and first year-students Michael Buckley, Eric Buehler, Federico Read Grullon and Boone Wilde.
Directing the production is Cheryl McFarren, associate professor of theatre. Professor Cynthia Turnbull is the costume designer, associate professor Peter Pauzé is the scenic designer, and senior Ying Huo is the lighting designer.
Sophomore Kayla Boggess is assistant to the director and dramaturg. Jay Sachs is the production stage manager, assisted by sophomores LauraAnn Schmidberger and Lauren Thompson.
