Euripides’ “Trojan Women” was first produced in 415 BC and is largely viewed as a response to the Greeks’ invasion of Melos and the subsequent butchery of all males and enslavement of all females. War is a topic we are all too familiar with today, 2,430 years after this play was first performed.

“In ‘Trojan Woman’ Euripides is pointing out the dehumanizing effects of war on the victors and on the victims,” said Camp Sobel, play director and CNM faculty member in the School of Communication, Humanities & Social Sciences. “The classics require everything from the actor. I am in awe of these young actors’ commitment and talent. And the Theatre department staff, faculty and student designers’ dedication to training and executing quality work has been fantastic. We are bringing a daring and true Trojan Women to life for the Albuquerque theatre goer.”

All performances will take place at CNM’s Coal Avenue Theatre, located on Coal Avenue between University and Buena Vista Dr. For more information or reservations, call (505) 224-3593 or email
