Tour Information

The Trojan War ended in a blaze of shame, a massacre of horrific proportions.

Now the children of Troy’s Greek conquerors face the impossible task of living up to their immortalised parents.

Hector’s widow, Andromaque, lives only to save her son. When the Greeks demand his surrender, she is given an appalling dilemma.

Racine exposes our capacity for self deception with lacerating clarity.

The first performance of Andromaque was at Theatre du Nord, Lille on 4 October 2007. Produced by C.I.C.T / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in a co-production with Théâtre du Nord, Lille and Cheek by Jowl.
