The Trojan Women

Martha Henry is fantastic. Kelly Fox as Cassandra is fabulously mad. Seanna McKenna sobs for all mothers hearing that her son is to die. It is heartbreaking and stunning, and her interaction with her son is so powerful, you absolutely believe that this poor boy will be killed.

The staging reminds me why I love the Patterson – you are so close you think you are in the play.

I can’t believe that I lived so long without coming to Greek tragedy – it is amazing and the Stratford productions over the last couple of years have been great.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    I do find the slashing of wrists in a warm bath after seeing the play diminishes the pleasure somewhat, but it was a great production and I second Cathy’s comments about the actors she highlighted.
