Taffety Punk Theatre Company at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop 545 7th Street SE Washington DC 20003

The women of Taffety Punk Theatre Company began the Riot Grrrls with a thrust of activism against the ever-present all-male productions of classical plays. The all-women arm of DC’s innovative and multi-disciplinary Taffety Punk continues to stoke the fires with a play that is considered one of the earliest forms of artistic protest.

Smoke still rising from a final night of pillage, and annihilation wrought upon them by the Greeks, the survivors of Troy gather to make sense of the senseless. They plead for answers—from the gods, from their dead loved ones, and from each other. An intermediary who speaks on behalf of the Greeks brings them news of their fates, which seem to grow bleaker with each passing moment. Then there is the matter of facing Helen—the woman among them who is blamed for the destruction. In a complicated struggle of identity, loss, jealousy, and vengeance, the victims of Troy claim all that is left of them, their voices.
