Lincoln High to present Euripides' 'The Trojan Women'

By Jenn McKee

The University Musical Society recently brought a production of a new adaptation of Euripides' 2,400 year old play, "The Trojan Women" (by way of the New York-based theater troupe, SITI Company), to the Power Center. But fans of the play will have another opportunity to explore the work when Lincoln High School (7425 Willis Road in Ypsilanti) presents "The Trojan Women" this weekend.

From the press release:

The Lincoln High School Theatre Department concludes its stellar 2012-2013 season with the classic Greek Tragedy, "The Trojan Women," which was the winner of the best play award at the 415 BC Dionysian Theatre Festival. This play is one of Euripides’ most heart-wrenching plays and tells the still-relevant story of the fates of the women who survive the Trojan War, only to be divided up between the conquering Greeks as slaves. Lincoln Theatre Department’s production features original music by former student teacher and current substitute teacher, Mr. Mark Truna; an extended combat sequence representing the fall of Troy; and amazing lead performances by seniors Emily Bamrick, Laura Wynne, Bria Woods, Walter Floyd, Armand Garnett, Elijah Bouldin, Zollie Cole and Camille Figarra.

… "The Trojan Women" runs May 16-19, 2013 in the new Lincoln Consolidated Schools Performing Arts Center. The performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday start at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for non-adults.
