“If you like your live theatre thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, and cathartic, then Christine Evans’ Trojan Barbie… is for you." - Huffington Post.

Written by Christine Evans, directed by Gaye Poole and performed by the Univesity of Waikato's third year Theatre Studies students, Trojan Barbie: A car-crash encounter with Euripides’ Trojan Women.

As the fall of Troy ripples through time, Christine Evans contorts past with the present in Trojan Barbie. Alongside a backdrop of modern warfare, we follow Lotte, on holiday in modern Turkey, as she crosses paths with Trojan women (Hecuba, Andromache) in a US military war encampment. Ancient myth melds with modern warfare. Cassandra and Polly X encounter modern soldiers. Helen of Troy is the “War B*tch.”

Mature content and strong language.
