Last Days of Troy

Overview

The Last Days of Troy is recreated on stage at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

When the Greeks attempt to get back their abducted Queen, Helen, they resort to siege tactics. With bloody battlefields, many dead and a conflict that shows no sign of ending, it is clear to both sides that they have reached a stalemate. Despairing and tired, the gods join the mortals in the arguing and disputes as everyone desperately tries to claim victory and with it the spoils of war.

This is Simon Armitage’s bold dramatisation of the final part of Homer’s Iliad. Exploring a world that is defined by both conflict and revenge, this is a story that hinges on the back-room stories of pride, family ties and national loyalty. Tense and intriguing, this ancient work retains its timeless qualities, with its moments of powerful tragedy.
