High Torches
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Six women await their fate in a prison, while their homes, lives and families burn to the ground. The Queen sees her devastated country through one tiny window, and around her, her world falls apart piece by piece. Women, widows and prisoners of war each react to losing control over their lives. Deeply provocative and darkly comic, this rework of Euripidess classic Women of Troy challenges you to consider loss of control and what you would rescue from the fire.
