MooneyOnTheatre review of “The Trojan Women”

Favourable comparison to Nightwood’s  just-closed The Penelopiad :

“They are both tales from the canon of the ancient Greeks and have been written for the modern day by fantastic female Canadian writers – The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood and The Trojan Women by Gwendolyn MacEwen.”

“Further similarities include an excellent use of fabric in costumes/props/set dressings to convey a myriad of things, and the inclusion of some humour into the tragic tales.”

Several of the actors are praised, including:

Molly Thom as Hecuba was every inch a bitter, ruined queen…”

Nicole St. Martin is heart-wrenching as Andromache… ”

“Menelaus, played by Scott Moore, is very amusing …”
