Improbable Fictions presents a staged reading of Hecuba, Euripides’ other great tragedy about Hecuba and the women of Troy, written before Trojan Women, and taking place about three days after the events of the second play. A timeless and terrifying tale of loss, betrayal, and revenge by a group of powerless, voiceless prisoners after the cataclysmic destruction of their city and way of life.
