“My plays are broken, jagged, filled with sharp edges,” says American playwright Charles Mee. “That feels good to me.…It feels like the world. And then I like to put this…into a classical form, or some other effort at civilization.” Mee has done just this with this student production of Euripides’ The Trojan Women, the ancient Greek playwright’s recounting of the war atrocities Athens visited upon Troy, and contemporized it by including firsthand accounts from survivors of the Holocaust and Hiroshima.
