“The past folded uneasily into the present”

Winner! 2009 Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Playwriting Fellowship

A Car-Crash Encounter with Euripides' Trojan Women. Past and present violently collide when Lotte, an English tourist who repairs dolls, is captured while on a tour of current-day Troy and flung back into the ancient camp of Euripides' Trojan Women.

Part contemporary drama, part homage to Euripides' Trojan Women, Trojan Barbie recasts the legendary fall of the city of Troy against the vivid reality of modern warfare. Poetic, compassionate, and tinged with great warmth and humour, Trojan Barbie is an epic war story with a most unlikely heroine, who always looks on the bright side even as past and present collide about her. Deeply concerned with the supposed inevitability and the cyclical nature of war and suffering, Trojan Barbie is a human story told across the ages and beyond time. 


An experimental piece of theatre with an outstanding script, Trojan Barbie is like nothing King's has seen before.
