By Marina Carr


The Irish premiere of a major work by Marina Carr.

Hecuba is a passionate reimagining of the aftermath of the Trojan War and the events surrounding its iconic characters; a series of intense, dangerous personal encounters and impossible choices, described by those who witnessed and experienced them.

We are encouraged to think the unthinkable – what if it was me being asked to do these things, or suffering their consequences? In the time of the devastation of Syria and the global refugee crisis, when climate change is every day bringing catastrophe closer to the shores of the West, it’s a disturbingly appropriate question.

This drama of a complex and powerful woman is also a depiction of the effect of war and its emotional cost to the individual.


Hecuba will be performed as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival
27th September – 6th October 2019 at the Project Arts Centre
Previews: 25th – 26th Sept
Post Show discussion: 2nd October with Marina Carr, Lynne Parker and members of the company
