Queens Of Syria tells the story of fifty women from Syria, all forced into exile in Jordan as refugees, who came together in autumn 2013 to create and perform their own version of Euripides' 'The Trojan Women'; the timeless ancient Greek tragedy all about the plight of women in war. None of them had ever acted before!
What followed was an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural contact across millennia, in which women born in 20th century Syria found a blazingly vivid mirror of their own experiences in the stories of a Queen, Princess, and ordinary women like them, uprooted, enslaved, and bereaved by the Trojan war.
Refugee Productions present, in association with Abu Dhabi Film Festival, the Asfari Foundation and the British Council.
