The Trojan Women

Written by: Jerrod Bogard
Directed by: Kristin Skye Hoffman

Wide Eyed re-imagines Euripides' THE TROJAN WOMEN, one of history's most powerful plays on the eternal tragedy of war and genocide, and brings the ancient text to new life with heart-pounding immediacy and the relevance inspired by our current American military operations.
The Trojan Women is directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann, Founding Artistic Director of Wide Eyed Productions. She sets this retelling in a post modern Middle Eastern war zone. Her aim is not to merely illuminate the many tragedies of war, but also to celebrate the strength and humanity of the victims.

Wide Eyed Productions is a New York City-based collective of artists dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in risk-taking, relevant theatre.

Through our collaborative process Wide Eyed discovers and creates theatre that both stimulates the imagination and awakens the public's passion for high standards in the performing arts.
