The war is over but she must fight on.

One year has passed since the fall of Troy. The city lies in ruins, Andromache and her son are captives, the spoils of war. Her enemies crave her submission and demand his death. The war is over, its heroes are dead. Now their children must pick up the pieces.

Rarely performed in English, Racine’s masterpiece is a sharp, contemporary story of desire and pride, resentment and revenge, of the lengths we go to get what we want, and the sacrifices demanded to protect those we love. One of European theatre’s greatest dramas, in Trinity College’s stunning 17th century chapel, transformed into a theatre for one week only.
