A brand new, haunting and uplifting adaptation of Euripides’ great anti-war tragedy, written and acted by a cast of Syrian refugees living in Glasgow, performed in Arabic (with subtitles) and English. The Trojans transcends countries and time, with a cast who have known the horror of war bringing their own experiences of exile and loss into Euripides’ shocking 2,500 year old play; they also tell of the bitter-sweetness of building new lives in Scotland.

This extraordinary production is the culmination of nine months of drama workshops at Platform and is brought to you by the award-winning director Victoria Beesley and the originating producers of the highly acclaimed Queens of Syria (Young Vic 2016) and Syria: The Trojan Women (NCC Amman, 2013), supported by Glasgow City Council.

Adapted by Mariem Omari, with Alaa Saloum and Sanaa Al Froukh including original writing by the cast.
