Queer Ball Culture meets Greek Tragedy
In an unnamed hospital
In an unnamed city
Hecuba and her daughters
Await a diagnosis.
Greek tragedy meets Harlem ball culture in this fierce and fabulous new play, adapted from Euripides’ The Trojan Women and inspired by the seminal documentary Paris is Burning. Set in a hospital waiting room during a mysterious plague, the play is a modern observation of HIV/AIDS and reimagines the Greek characters as Queer bodies of colour fighting for survival.
"Greek tragedy meets Harlem ball scene. Fantastic!"
